Accessories to Use Continuous Perfusion
The Compact Organ Baths have been designed and developed to satisfy
the requirements of investigators by offering advanced characteristics that
render them suitable for the in-vitro study of tissue behavior. Due to their
compact design minimum bench space is required.
The modular design allows up to eight individually mounted tissues to be
studied simultaneously and independently per system. Several models are
available, from one up to eight chambers. All of them are supplied with an
external heating control unit, transducer' stands & micropositioners and
tissue holders. The main perspex reservoir houses the heater system, the
chambers and coils, all submerged in thermostatetically controlled water.
Each vessel is filled and emptied by means of a three-way tap (Manual
Series) or by electrically-operated valves (Automatic Series) which, besides
the possibility of manual activation by means of frontal pushbuttons, can
also be remotely controlled by a Timer or Programmer (Software).
Tissue chambers come in 5, 10, 25 or 50 mL capacity. A range of isometric
or isotonic force transducers are available.
The Compact Organ Baths are associated with the PROTOWIN software
for data storage and analysis.
