Isolated Organ Baths have been designed for accurate recording of isometric or isotonic tissue contraction/release.  Available as 1,2, or 4-channel turn-key systems.  Used in classic Pharmacology research and teaching worldwide since 1960s!

Research involving effects of electrical stimuli or drugs on isolated smooth muscles, uterus, trachea, vessel strips, auricle, etc. can be performed under optimum conditions.
Wash or test solution enters chamber after passing through the temperature equilibrating coils and the syringe valve. The tissue in the chamber is washed by flushing the chamber through an overflow drain tube, to avoid exposing the tissue to the air. Water stirring is accomplished by a water jet delivered by a centrifugal pump.
A 200W stainless steel heating element is mounted on the Perspex tank floor. A precise solid state “proportional” thermostat maintains the temperature within the excellent limits of +/- 0.1ºC on all models.
