When the Pharmacology team at award-winning Monash University started planning for their new multidisciplinary teaching labs, they looked for alternatives to their traditional, bulky and high-maintenance organ bath systems.

After selecting and installing the versatile, compact and easy-care DMT Tissue Organ Bath systems, the team experienced significant savings in time and effort. More importantly, the real tissue experiments are providing compelling benefits to their increasing numbers of undergraduate and post graduate Science and Bioscience students.
