Researchers studying various physiological conditions which alter systemic blood flow and distribution such as exercise, aging, heart failure, hypertension, and circulatory compromise require accurate & repeatable measurements of cardiovascular function. Transonic® offers a complete suite of cardiovascular research solutions for both small and large animals for acute use and chronic implantation.
Transonic’s signature high-resolution ultrasonic transit-time technology can measure volume blood flows of < 1 mL/min in vessels as small as 0.3 mm in diameter as well as flows up to 200 L/min in 36 mm diameter vessels.
Transonic offers an alternative to perivascular volume blood flow measurements for the analysis of regional microcirculation. A Laser Doppler Probe placed gently on the surface of an organ measures perfusion in 1 cubic mm of tissue. Ideal for monitoring the effects of exercise, drug treatments, ischemia/reperfusion, and manipulations on target microvascular beds.
Transonic’s flow measurement technology gives precision volume flow measurements in extracorporeal and ex vivo applications such as for Langendorff and isolated organ preparations and pump perfused protocols. Inline and Clamp-on Tubing Flowsensors measure flow of physiological buffer solutions as well as blood with user-friendly features specific to laboratory bench settings. Flowsensors are available in sizes from 1 mm ID to 25 mm to accommodate perfusion models from mice to man.
