Porsolt has an extensive portfolio of cardiovascular procedures, ranging from standard cardiovascular telemetry studies for safety evaluation, to pathophysiological models for specific therapeutic areas. Porsolt also possesses considerable expertise with in vitro models, providing clients with a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of cardiovascular function.
CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM DISEASE
Cardiac Arrhythmias are a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular and Cardiac Toxicity is the measurement of potential damage caused to the heart.
|Digoxin-induced ventricular arrhythmias (anesthetized animals)||Guinea-pig|
|Torsades de Pointes arrhythmias (modified Carlsson model)||Rabbit|
The autonomic nervous system regulates bodily functions, such as heart rate, and is monitored under different conditions.
|Postural hypotension (anesthetized animals)||Rat|
|Postural hypotension (telemetry)||Rat|
Cardiac activity, including electrical activity, is monitored under different conditions.
