TS420 Meter

In vivo Blood Flow and Cardiac Function Measurements: Project ALIAS has a Transonic TS420 400-Series Perivascular flowmeter module and cardiac pressure-volume (PV) loop system. PV loop systems are considered the “Gold” standard in cardiac functional assessment and are useful in determination of myocardial contractility, compliance, muscle energetic and other important quantitative measures of function.  Readouts are measured through a lab master unit and analyzed in real-time by Lab Chart software. 

Note to users: PV loop transducing catheters and blood flow meters are extremely fragile and typically labs that will need frequent usage should acquire their own before commencing a project.
