Transverse Aortic Constriction (TAC): Why, how and the outcome as it relates to pressure overload-induced cardiac hypertrophy and/or heart failure

Chronic congestive heart failure, more commonly referred to as heart failure (HF), is a multifactorial cardiac disease which can affect the heart both structurally and/or functionally thereby impairing its ability to properly fill and eject blood from the ventricles.

Normoxia isn’t normal: Conventional incubators generate more questions than they answer

Since the first CO2 incubators were made commercially available in the late 1960’s they have become a staple for researchers to grow and maintain cells in vitro. These chambers have been highly effective for this task; however, they do

Re-evaluating manual colony counting: How automated counting is saving researchers time and effort

Manual colony counting method A typical manual counting scenario looks like this: The researcher finds an object and decides whether it is a colony. If it is determined to be a colony, the researcher then ascertains if it meets

Benchtop blood pressure: A fast, affordable and non-invasive technique

The capability to precisely and non-invasively measure the systolic and diastolic blood pressure, on top of heart rate and other blood flow parameters in rodents, can be of great clinical value to researchers. The non-invasive rat and mouse blood

WEBINAR: A Noninvasive Alternative to +dP/dtmax: Peak Aortic Blood Acceleration

Dr. Anil Reddy discusses how to use noninvasive blood flow velocity measurements to quantify cardiac contractility as a surrogate to +dP/dtmax. Invasive measurement of left ventricular pressure is considered the gold standard for evaluating cardiac contractility and relaxation in

Cardiac Capacity and Thermal Performance: an examination of cardiovascular development in Atlantic salmon

This team of researchers in the Biology Department at Western University are investigating ways to reintroduce Atlantic salmon to the Great Lakes, specifically Lake Ontario. Hatchery stocking programs are a major tool used to improve recreational fishing opportunities. They

Bringing hypoxia chambers into the 21st century: Making a case for absolute measurements

In the last year, I’ve spoken to countless hypoxia researchers in person, at conferences, and over the phone. When I reach out to these people the one question I always ask is “in what units does your current chamber
