This "twitch-reflex", recorded isometrically by the myograph, exhibits a tension proportional to the number of motor units engaged, in other words to the size of the single centrifugal impulse volley.
The threaded vessel segment was then placed between the mounting support jaws of a four-chamber small-vessel wire myograph (Multi Wire Myograph System 610M, DMT, Denmark).
The software can display up to 128 channels of data simultaneously at sampling rates as high as 100,000 samples/second. iWorx cardiovascular research solutions include complete tissue baths systems, blood flow systems, and myograph systems.
Artery rings were mounted in a wire myograph, bathed in Krebs solution (gassed with 95% air/5% CO2, pH 7.4), and normalized to a resting pretension corresponding to an intraluminal pressure of 40 mm Hg (125d GA) or 50 mm Hg (140d GA).
