Complete Muscle Physiology Systems
1200A: Isolated Muscle System – Mouse
The 1200A isolated muscle test system is a leading solution for quantifying mechanical properties of isolated muscle from mice. This system is ideal for a number of limb muscles including the TA, EDL, Soleus, Gastroc and for diaphragm strips and smaller muscle samples.
1205A: Isolated Muscle System – Rat
The 1205A isolated muscle test system is optimized for the study of mechanical properties of rat isolated muscle samples. Just like the 1200A, this system is ideal for a number of limb muscles such as TA, EDL, Soleus, Gastroc and for diaphragm strips and smaller muscle samples.
1300A: 3-in-1 Whole Animal System – Mouse
The 1300A is a high-performing, precise test system, giving researchers a simple method to test tensile and other mechanical properties of muscle samples from mice. By combining in-situ, in-vivo and in-vitro muscle tests using one simple platform, researchers can capture a complete picture of muscle physiology.
1305A: 3-in-1 Whole Animal System – Rat
The 1305A is a high-performing, precise test system, giving researchers a simple method to test tensile and other mechanical properties of muscle samples from Rats. By combining in-situ, in-vivo and in-vitro muscle tests using one simple platform, researchers can capture a complete picture of muscle physiology.
1310A: 3-in-1 Whole Animal System – Large Rodent & Small Animal
A flexible test system delivering accurate measurement of large rodent & small animal muscle properties in-situ, in-vivo, and in-vitro. This is ideal for live animal protocols including injury and longitudinal studies, allowing researchers to evaluate the mechanical characteristics of intact muscle of large rodents, either isolated in-situ, with a footplate (ex-vivo) or isolated in-vitro.
1400A: Permeabilized Fiber System – Microscope Mountable
The 1400A and 1410A Permeabilized Fiber Systems are designed to enhance experimental throughput and simplify complex permeabilized fiber experiments. They provide accurate measurements of fiber properties across a broad range of applications and tests.
1500A: Isolated Muscle System – Microscope Mountable
With numerous configurations, the Isolated Muscle Systems (1500A, 1510A and 1530A) are highly integrated, turnkey systems providing physiology researchers a simple way to control and measure intact muscle and physiological small tissue samples.
1600A: Permeabilized Myocyte System – Microscope Mountable
The 1600A Permeabilized Myocyte Test System is designed to streamline contractile property testing in skinned myocytes. A large cell mounting area provides ample room for cell attachment while push button controlled motorized stages simplify cell attachment to a high-speed servo motor and our 400 series precision force transducers.
1700A: Myofibril System – Microscope Mountable
The 1700A Myofibril System is the first commercially available myofibril system specifically designed to measure the nano-Newton forces arising from activation of single myofibrils. This is a complete test system, including all hardware required to characterize myofibril contraction.
