Gastrointestinal Studies


Motility

In Vivo:

  • Small Intestinal motility recording
  • Colonic motility recording in rodents and large animals

In Vitro:

  • Smooth muscle bath measuring of Smooth Muscle contractibility, Electrical activity, and Electric Field Stimulation

Transit

In Vivo:

  • Non-absorbable marker perfusion technique
  • Transmural potential difference attached to a MacLab data acquisition system

In Vitro

  • Using Chambers attached to a MacLab data acquisition system to measure Short Circuit Current, Transmural Potential Difference, and Conductance in response to electrical field stimulation and exogenous agents:
