- Integrated CNS, cardiovascular and pulmonary testing and data collection to streamline your pre-clinical trial programs
Our cardiovascular and pulmonary toxicology services include:
Implantable radiotelemetry allows for accurate measurements of many parameters in conscious test subjects. Integrated intravenous dosing, cardiovascular and TK data collection to streamline your pre-clinical trial programs using the CULEX device.
Anesthetized Cardiovascular Preparation
Acute anesthetized models to collect cardiovascular data are available for circumstances when ambulatory methods such as telemetry are not applicable. Additional determinations such as blood flow can be performed in conjunction with the cardiovascular evaluations. Acute anesthetized models are available for circumstances when ambulatory methods such as telemetry are not applicable.
Isolated Heart Langendorff/Ex Vivo Assay
We conduct high-throughput ex vivo dose escalation studies to deliver fast, accurate measurements of the direct effects of drugs or chemicals on the heart. Isolated heart studies are an excellent screening tool for early stage drug development.
Pulmonary function determinations can be performed alone or in conjunction with cardiovascular evaluations in un-anesthetized large and small test systems. Assays include helmeted plethysmography or jacketed respiratory inductive plethysmography (RIP) bands. Additional pulmonary function evaluations can be performed in anesthetized preparations.
When you come to Battelle, you’ll find world-class expertise and dedicated, state-of-the-art facilities with everything you need to complete your study, from initial study design to regulatory support. And if your study requires an approach beyond the ordinary, don’t worry. At Battelle, we don’t just collect data – we solve problems.
