Radnoti Micro Cannulated Vessel Systems are used to study physiological function of small micro vessels under controlled near physiological conditions.
A small segment of artery or vein is cannulated using easy to align glass cannula. Perfusate is run through the sample at a user set pressure or flow rate, while external bathing solution may remain static or superfused. Pharmacological compounds may be added to the perfusate or superfusate. Constriction or dilation can be monitored via pressure signal and or changes in diameter and sample wall thickness via the optional digital edge detection bundle.
Chambers may also be used with user’s confocal imaging systems.
The MCVS has a number of advantages over traditional systems including a unique movable platform with separate zones for dissection/mounting and recording making the system much
easier for users to work with.
