Isolated Tissue Baths
Isolated tissue baths are used to maintain the integrity of muscle tissue for several hours, in a controlled environment, while physiological measurements are performed.
Controlling conditions like temperature, oxygenation, nutrients and pH is a useful way to observe and compare evoked responses to drugs and electrical stimulation. The tissue responds to the stimuli by contracting or relaxing, and an isometric or isotonic transducer is used to measure force or displacement, respectively. A wide a variety of tissue from various species can be studied, including chick, toad, rabbit, rat, mouse and guinea-pig.
PowerLab and LabChart, combined with a tissue bath apparatus, provide a simple, sophisticated solution for Isolated Tissue Research.
