Mouse/Neonatal Rat Balloon Assembly Kit

Mouse/Neonatal Rat Balloon Assembly Kit

Used for measuring isovolumetric contractile forces in the left ventricle of isolated perfused hearts. Latex balloons are not suitable for mice hearts due to the rigidity of the latex material. A technique using cling-film allows you to create small balloons which can be used for such small hearts. All the components to make these balloons are included in a covenient kit.

This kit for Mouse Ventricular Ballons includes the tools and procedure to assemble balloons for isovolumetric left ventricular pressure measurement in the isolated perfused mouse heart. The kit consists of a stand with two holders and crocodile clamps, hex screwdriver modified for balloon forming, syringe, scissor, cling wrap and PE tubing.
