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.
LabTrax 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.
The type of pump you choose for your fluid handling will largely depend on your laboratory application. In this article, we will compare the popular pump types.
Application kits are specially designed for eye research for injecting retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and for intraocular (IO) injections.
Surgical instruments for dissecting come in a variety of patterns, types, shapes,and sizes. Choosing the correct one for your application will improve your outcome and reduce the frustration of trying to use an inappropriate tool.
The proper care and handling of your valuable surgical instruments will improve their longevity and function. Choose a protocol appropriate for your environment from the cleaning techniques below.
You can find a range of pumps on the market today, and each microinjection pump is suited for its own applications. In this article, we will compare the volume ranges of a variety of pumps and consider the applications these pumps are best suited for.
If you have seen a rainbow, you have seen the visible part of the light spectrum broken out. Each color of light is actually a different wavelength of light. In scientific applications, we are often interested in only one or two wavelengths of light. For example, a muscle tissue can be stained with a dye that makes the calcium glow when a certain wavelength of light hits it. Or, a nerve cell can be stained with a dye that glows when the cell is firing.
