PRESSURE MYOGRAPH SYSTEM - 110PXL
FEATURES & BENEFITS
»measuring diameter changes under physiological pressures«
The Pressure Myograph System - 110PXL is a custom-designed version of the Pressure Myograph System - 110P for constant pressure use with larger arteries and veins. The chamber includes a set of adapters to accommodate arteries with internal diameters of 2.5 to 6.0 mm.
A built-in heating system maintains the chamber temperature, eliminating the need for continuous (and often costly) superfusion. The chamber cover includes ports for superfusion, for rapid draining and filling, for cumulative addition of drugs and for oxygenation. To facilitate cleaning, the chamber is made of stainless steel and is acid resistant.
The 110PXL chamber, in combination with low-power objectives, can be used for the study of large artery reactivity and/or compliance by measuring diameter changes under physiological pressures, which are precisely controlled through the system’s interface or through the imaging software.
The state-of-the-art Pressure Myograph software MyoVIEW will collect data such as vessel wall thickness, changes in vessel and lumen diameter, intravascular pressure, and a host of other calculated parameters.
