Rodent Blood Pressure and Flow Measurement Workshop
Surgical Skills Centre Almere, The Netherlands
Events are scheduled based on the needs of the registrants.
Transonic and the René Remie Surgical Skills Centre (RRSSC) join forces during this rodent microsurgery, blood pressure and flow workshop. This is an on demand fully customizable workshop that will make you an expert in your rodent blood pressure and flow application of choice.
The goal of this workshop is to teach registrants all ins and outs of solid-state pressure technology and ultrasound transit-time based absolute volume blood flow measurements while optimizing your microsurgical skills. Since the number of applications in rodent studies is endless, there is no predefined program. Transonic’s perivascular flow probes have been around for 30 years. This means that there is no blood vessel that we have not worked with. Let us know what your goals are and we will create a program for you.
Who Should Attend:
This course is designed for scientists and technicians who are both new to rodent pressure and blood flow recording techniques as well as those who are experienced and wish to refine their techniques. While the course language will be English, the course instructors are also versed in Dutch, German and French. Therefore, one-to-one instruction can take place in multiple languages.
