Infrared contrast imaging (IRCI) enables clear visualization of physiological and structural features of living tissue which are otherwise very difficult to detect. This is demonstrated in a rodent model where cardiac infarct was induced via ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD).
A cell injection system designed to deliver small spatially-contained volumes while maintaining and promoting stem cell viability and functionality through controlled cooling
Small volume biological injections have traditionally been accomplished using thumb pressure on a hand-operated disposable syringe. Though this has been shown to be a workable situation in some cases, it has become clear that for protocol optimization, reproducibility, scale up and quantification, improved tools and methodology are required.
