Advanced Danish-made systems for studying smooth, skeletal and cardiac muscle
PORTABLE ORGAN BATH SYSTEM
The easy to use 4-channel Organ Bath 820MO is a flexible system for contraction/relaxation studies of isolated smooth, skeletal, or cardiac tissue.
- System construction is robust (no glass components)
- Small footprint making it portable. Ideal for labs with limited space or for easy sharing between researchers.
- Simple tissue mounting, easy to operate, easy to maintain
- Highly sensitive force transducers provide data that is accurate and reproducible
Easy-clean chambers are made of acid resistant stainless steel which prevents lipids from sticking to its surface. Systems are well suited to intensive and long term use.
LEADING WIRE MYOGRAPH SYSTEMS
Examine functional responses and vascular reactivity of isolated small vessels to agonists such as drugs or hormones. Ideal for high throughput work such as repetitive concentration-response curves.
Mount small vessels as ring preparations by threading them onto two stainless steel or tungsten wires and securing the wires to two supports.
Multi Wire Myograph System – 620M
Automated Multi Wire Myograph System – 630MA
Automates the normalization procedure for easy setting of calculations and preload tension for improved accuracy and repeatability.
Single Wire Myograph System – 320A
Ideal for studying a single vessel with a diameter of 30μm – 3mm.
Double Wire Myograph System – 420A
Simultaneously test two vessels independently with diameters of 30μm – 3mm. The base of the chamber contains glass windows for microscopy.
Confocal Wire Myograph System – 360CW
Provides close-up optical access to a mounted artery or tissue segment for high-resolution images of fluorescent dyes or markers by laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM).
PRESSURE MYOGRAPH SYSTEMS
DMT’s systems (Pressure Pulsation Myograph 112PP (as pictured) and Pressure Myograph System 114P) measure the physiological function and properties of small arteries, veins and other vessels. The systems enable the study of the pharmacological effects of drugs and other vasoactive compounds on small isolated vessels under near-physiological conditions.
The system includes powerful software by DMT that features easy, flexible live diameter tracking of perfused arteries.
MUSCLE STRIP MYOGRAPH SYSTEMS
DMT’s newest line of myograph systems measures the myo-mechanical properties of strips of solid muscle. The tissue is held by clamps that can be custom made to meet customer needs. Inherent to striated muscle is the need for reliable electrical current stimulation. The DMT stimulators are designed to provide this reliable current source.
TISSUE ORGAN BATHS FOR EDUCATION
DMT myographs and organ bath systems give students access to real experiments, that can extend basic knowlege to conceptual understanding.
The DMT organ bath systems designed for education are compact and easy to use.
The innovative, easy to use systems are boosting learning outcomes by engaging science students as they learn about pharmacological and physiological concepts.
