iWorx, a developer of advanced physiology research and teaching tools, has launched a family of cardiovascular research products used to assess cardiac performance and hemodynamics, both in vivo and in vitro.
The company said that the systems, software and components are used for a number of research applications, including measuring and analyzing blood pressure, electrocardiograms, blood flow and cardiac output, pressure-volume, sonomicrometry dimension and volume, isolated Langendorff and working heart models, and isolated tissue studies.
iWorx’ LabScribe2 recording and analysis software provides a set of pre-configured routines to simplify data interpretation and analysis. Specific software modules for cardiovascular research are available to analyze pressure signals, blood flow data, ECG recordings, ventricular pressure-volume loops and sonomicrometry dimension data.
The software can display up to 128 channels of data simultaneously at sampling rates as high as 100,000 samples/second, claims the company.
iWorx cardiovascular research solutions include complete tissue baths systems, blood flow systems, and myograph systems. A wide range of transducers, amplifiers, signal conditioners, multi-channel data recorders and accessories can be used for in situ experiments, isolated heart preparations and isolated tissue protocols.
