This Radnoti Isolated Rodent Liver/Kidney Apparatus is designed to physiologically perfuse an isolated rodent (rat or mouse) liver or kidney preparation in either recirculating or non-recirculating experimental protocols. Although primarily designed to study hepatic function in rodents, some researchers have adapted the apparatus themselves to be used with other species such as rainbow trout.
The modular design of this apparatus and quick-disconnect tubings (allow for quick and easy tubing assembly/disassembly) provide easy customization, modifications, and additions tailored to current or future needs.
The apparatus can easily be instrumented with compatible measurement tools (purchased separately) including:
The apparatus is also supplied as part of the isolated Perfused Rodent Liver Foundation System. Additional configurations excluding the pressure transducers, thermal circulator bath, and peristaltic pump are also available. Please consult your ADInstruments representative for more information.
