wire myograph / for preclinical research
for preclinical research
The measurement of microvessels contractility following drug administration is widely used in preclinical research.
Our myograph systems are suitable for the study of microvessels, such as veins, small arteries, lymph vessels and tracheal smooth muscle.
Oxygenated and nutrient-rich perfusate is provided to tissues with lumen diameter from 100µm to 3mm and segment lengths up to 3.5mm, while allowing the investigation of vascular function following drug challenges.
