MemoryFlex Surgical Scissors for Clean Cut Every Time

Posted: Sunday, July 31, 2016

Vein graft cut with memory scissorsOur new line of MemoryFlex™surgical scissors made in the USA can cut through at least 64 layers of latex while most of the scissors on the market are not able to handle eight layers. They cut better, last longer and cause less trauma to tissue. How is this possible?

Monitor the Growth of Epithelial Cells in Vitro Manually

TEER Measurement SystemsAre you ready to perform experiments involving a cultured cell monolayer? If your monolayer has not reached confluence, you may have holes or gaps in the monolayer that would prevent collection of valid experimental data. When confluence is reached, the electrical resistance across the monolayer peaks and then plateaus. The EVOM2 meter was designed specifically for this application.

The EVOM2 is the ideal meter for use when you are making manual TEER measurements on small batches of cell cultures and do not require a high throughput system.

Data Acqusition Designed for Muscle Physiology Pre-Clinical Trials

Posted: Tuesday, October 20, 2015

LabTrax 8/16LabTrax 8/16 hardware combined with MDAC software is an excellent choice for WPI's SI-H line of muscle physiology products like the SI-MKB Muscle Platform, SI-CTS Cell Tester and SI-HTB Horizontal Tissue Baths. This data acquisition system is ideal for testing physiological characteristics like the contractile and elastic properties of different tissues in various conditions like isometric, anisometric or isotonic states. This data acquisition system was designed with the muscle researcher in mind, because the knowledge of physiological characteristics of muscles is critical when quantifying the beneficial or adverse effects of a stimulus (like a pharmaceutical drug) on muscle function in pre-clinical studies.
