Common Tests Performed on Muscles Using SI-H Systems

Posted: Thursday, February 13, 2014

This table describes the most common muscle physiology tests, along with which SI-H components are necessary to perform the tests.


SI-CTS200 has a Rotating Cuvette

Posted: Wednesday, February 12, 2014

The SI-CTS200 system utilizes a unique rotating bath to dramatically improve experimental throughput. The rotating bath is designed to orient cells in the XY plane so that no physical manipulation of the position of the cell itself is required prior to capture by the grabbing devices attached to the force sensor and linear actuator.


Cell Tester Boast Some Ingenious Features

Posted: Tuesday, April 30, 2013

The revolutionary Cell Tester SI-CTS200 is a new research tool for cellular investigation that can (without any changes) be used for one single living cell, for a small multi-cellular preparation and for single or larger skinned muscle strip preparations. Translational experiments from the single living cells to the intact multi-cellular level can be accomplished.


SI-H Cell Tester Opens a New Window to Cellular Studies

New technologies developed by SI-H offer incredible opportunities for muscle physiology researchers. Up until now, many studies required an entire day to perform a single trial. Now, after isolating the cells, these same studies can be run on single cells in a matter of minutes. Because we are working on single cells, we can test living organisms.


Many Modules for Cell/Muscle Testers

WPI offers several muscle tester platforms, including the:

  • SI-CTS200 –Cell Tester for experiments on single cells and small muscle tissues
  • SI-MKB –Comprehensive Muscle Plaftorm
