A complete data acquisition system for diameter & fluorescence measurements, as well as flow characterization in pressurized vessels
We have equipped our Myocyte Calcium and Contractility System for simultaneous measurements of pressurized blood vessel fluorescence and diameter. By visualizing the blood vessel on the microscope, IonOptix’ new vessel-specific dimensioning software, VesAcq, can track the outer and/or luminal diameters, wall thickness and cross-sectional area of the blood vessel from the digitized frame while simultaneously recording quantitative fluorescence, most commonly from calcium probes. Our new FloAcq software provides real-time measurements of important arterial flow properties such as shear stress and vascular resistance.
Typical Vessel Calcium, Diameter and Flow System with IonWizard acquisition module
We will work with the manufacturer of your myograph system to provide an integrated workstation capable of precise, synchronized data acquisition. Using our the FSI interface box and a system that allows the pressurization of microvessels we can provide real-time recording of all vessel myograph outputs, including pressure, force, temperature and pH, as well as calcium and diameter. We can interface our system with an existing microscope or supply the microscope as part of the system.
As with all of our systems, we stand behind our products. When we install our complete systems we use your preparations to help get you started as quickly as possible. And when you need assistance we offer unlimited phone and email support for the lifetime of your system.
IonOptix provides a full suite of software acquisition modules for all your vessel measurement needs. Use VesAcq to track vessel dimension, while simultaneously recording quantitative fluorescence with PMTAcq and/or arterial flow properties with FloAcq. All of these can be synchronized with external signals (such as inlet/outlet pressure from a myograph chamber) using IonWizard trace recording.
