PowerLab C Rodent Langendorff Foundation System
The PowerLab C Rodent Langendorff Foundation System is designed to perfuse an isolated mouse or rat heart, either in constant perfusion pressure or constant perfusion flow. Included is the high-quality, modular, yet compact ADInstruments Rodent Langendorff Apparatus, which provides flexibility for configuring various isolated heart experimental solutions. Additionally, the system is also supplied with LabChart Lightning software, flexible PowerLab C data acquisition, and hardware for measuring perfusion pressure and temperature. Further tailored parameters can be made by additionally purchasing from a range of compatible isolated heart kits, which includes measurements of left ventricular developed pressure, heart rate and biopotentials.
The PowerLab C Rodent Langendorff Foundation System is designed to perform retrograde perfusion of isolated rodent hearts (mice, rats, guinea pigs, and small rabbits). It combines ADInstruments Rodent Langendorff Apparatus with flexible PowerLab C data acquisition, LabChart Lightning software, and hardware, which allows temperature and perfusion pressure measurements. The STH Pump Controller uses the perfusion pressure to control the Peristaltic Pump’s speed, allowing the system to operate easily in constant perfusion pressure or perfusion flow.
PowerLab C manages the power delivery for four peripheral devices with sub-µS time synchronization for seamless data acquisition, while LabChart Lightning software allows data recording and analysis across multiple recordings with unlimited channels and custom calculations. (For use with LabChart 8, please contact your ADI representative.)
