Pressurizing Systems

Pneumatic Pressurizing System, AGP-1000Pneumatic-Pressurizing-System-AGP-1000-Systemjpg

Simplified system

The pressure chamber (outside dimensions (L) 16 cm x (W) 16 cm x (H) 10 cm) has an inlet and outlet valve for gas exchange. It would be placed inside an incubator for longer experiments as there is no temperature control. The pressure regulator would be hooked up to a pre-mixed CO2 tank (not included).

 

System Configuration System Specification
Control box, pressure chamber and pressure regulator. Settings: Continuous and cyclic mode.
Stimulation Pressure:
0- 200 mmHg with 7.6 mmHg incremental settings.

Electric and Pressure Stimulation System

Applies simultaneous electric stimulation and pressure for inducing muscle contraction in a cyclic manner.

System is connected to a CO2 tank (not included) and a source of electric current (also not included).
