MYOSCOPE system
A   comprehensive   and   modular   system   for   the investigation   of   intact   muscle   strips   (skeletal muscle,   heart   papillary   muscle,   trabeculae   or smooth muscle strips) and single cells
Basic     functions     and     specifications     of     the MYOSCOPE    system    are    presented    in    the movie
Electrical stimulation:
In the MYOSCOPE system four different cuvette systems are available.
Cuvette system 1 for intact  muscle preparations:
Cuvette system 2  for skinned muscle preparations:

more     details     about     this     cuvette system in the movie
Cuvette system 3 for single cells  or very small preparations :
more     details     about     this     cuvette system in the movie
Ultra flat cuvette system 4  for single cells  or very small preparations :

The   micrometer   assemply   MICROM   is   for   all   systems   the   same.   It   fits   to all cuvette systems.  
The   position   of   the   left   retainer   (blue   arrow)   and the     right     retainer     (red     arrow)     are     precisely adjusted by a number of micromanipulators.   For more detailed information see the movie.
Holder    for    special    aggregates    fitting    into    MICROM    (for    instance    force transducer or motors)

any other holder can be manufactured at customers option
The electrical stimulation is accomplished by the STIMULATOR AMPLIFIER. The instrument is controlled by the software MYODAT. More details are presented in the movie
