Langendorff Isolated Heart Perfusion

With the Langendorff isolated heart perfusion technique you can monitor an isolated heart while perfusing the coronary arteries with a nutrient solution. This allows you to record and  analyze multiple cardiac parameters such as left ventricular developed  pressure, perfusion pressure, cardiac electrical activity, heart rate and temperature all in real time.

ADInstruments' solutions support your use of the Langendorff animal heart perfusion technique to perfuse all sizes of heart models, from mice, rats, and guinea pigs, to porcine hearts.

  • Perfuse all sizes of heart models hearts from mice, rats and guinea pigs, to porcine hearts
  • Choose from a compact system which utilises a peristaltic pump and STH pump controller for constant flow and pressure or more traditional modular system
  • Maintain constant temperature with a heater water bath, water jacketed tubing, components and heart chamber
  • Easily switch between constant-pressure and constant flow modes to investigate coronary artery function while the heart beats spontaneously or with the help of an external stimulator

In conjunction with our complete Langendorff perfusion systems shown below, any device with an analog output (+/- 10V) can be connected to a PowerLab data acquisition system for synchronization of event in LabChart. So you have even more flexibility and can integrate all your data streams in one place.

All of our hardware is backed by the appropriate safety certification standards. More information on safety standards.
