The Muscle Strip System - 820MS represents a state-of-the-art 4-channel myograph system for muscle preparations of up to 19mm in length. The system gives muscle physiologists a highly sophisticated muscle myograph that was easy-to-use, robust, and high-throughput. The rectangular design of the chamber, however, gives this system the flexibility to mount larger, longer muscle strips of various organs, including larger segments of smooth muscle.
Furthermore the Muscle Strip System 820MS comes standard with a unique tissue clamp system to hold the mounted tissues. Customized mounting supports can be made upon request - contact DMT.
Each muscle bath unit in the Muscle Strip System - 820MS has individually controlled gas inflow and suction. The system is automatically heated to a given user-programmed set temperature.
Following mounting and equilibration, the length-tension relationships of the muscle can be determined. During the actual experiment, the length of the muscle is kept constant. Compounds can be added directly to the chamber to assess any positive or negative inotropism.
Stimulation electrodes built into the chamber cover (optional) can be used to activate the muscle via field stimulation from the Stimulator - CS4/CS8.
This system is well suited for studies involving muscle strip reactivity. Multiple units, especially in combination with the Automatic Buffer Filler System - 625FS, can be conveniently arranged side-by-side, making the 820MS ideal for work requiring high-throughput screening, such as drug testing or for experiments requiring the separation of muscle preparations in individual baths.
