The Tissue Organ Bath System - 751mT mini-TOBS is an affordable system that is recommended for a large variety of studies, predominantly in the teaching environment, where contractile force measurement (isometric or isotonic) is required. Whether the experiment involves cardiac, skeletal or smooth muscle, the availability of a range of tissue holders and chambers make it a versatile laboratory tool.
We have replaced the traditional water-based heating system with a very fast air-heating system. Furthermore, automated control of filling/emptying has been added, and an analog output has been provided for external data acquisition. The mini-TOBS has two heated and aerated buffer bottles which allow you to work with different buffers. Note that the mini-TOBS fits neatly in a fume hood, providing a convenient solution for researchers experimenting with hazardous tissue.
