The cardiac work cycle consists of four well-defined isometric and isotonic phases. The IonOptix MultiClamp software enables fast feedback control of pre- and after-load force levels. Together with the IonOptix MyoStretcher OptiForce force transducer and fast piezo motor, we can modulate the force development by rapidly changing the length of the myocyte in response to changing force load. By clamping the diastolic and systolic force levels (pre- and after-load), we can mimic the cardiac cycle, enabling work measurements in single, isolated cardiomyocytes.
