Working Heart

Working heart systems allow you to simultaneously monitor mechanical and electrical cardiac parameters, to examine the influence of preload and afterload on cardiac work during perfusion.

ADInstruments offer high-quality Working Heart and Langendorff systems for isolated working heart preparations. We also provide all complementary equipment and products, including tissue/organ baths, and a full range of supplementary accessories and consumables.

Advance your cardiac investigation with ADInstruments Working Heart and Working Heart Ultimate Systems. All systems include high quality and modular Radnoti glassware, PowerLab data acquisition hardware, LabChart Pro Analysis software and high-quality components for measuring cardiac parameters. 

Add in specific amplifiers, transducers and electrodes to record atrial and aortic pressures as well as ECG or take your investigations to the next level with components such as pH and micro-oxygen probes, transonic flow meters and Millar pressure catheters, which facilitate additional cardiac parameters and oxygen consumption measurements, as well as the option to pace the heart.

In conjunction with our complete 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.
