The ViVitro Pulse Duplicator is the world’s most widely used in vitro cardiovascular hydrodynamic testing system. It is composed of the ViVitro Model Left Heart, SuperPump and ViViTest data acquisition system. The components work together to assess the performance of prosthetic heart valves under simulated cardiac conditions.

When coupled with the ViVitro Pulse Duplicator, ViViTest provides the most powerful, user-friendly tool for hydrodynamic testing. The ViViTest control system inputs a waveform to the SuperPump while the data acquisition system captures and analyzes physiological pressures and valve flow rates.
The VIA consists of a unique combination of resistive and compliance elements to replicate the viscoelastic properties of the ventricle. It works with the SuperPump to produce realistic waveforms.
The ViVitro heat exchanger is a highly efficient add-on to the ViVitro Pulse Duplicator. It allows the heating of test fluid with minimal interference of the fluid flow.
These heated circulating baths feature a long life, high-wattage heater that delivers rapid fluid heat-up, optimized for the ViVitro Pulse Duplicator
The ViVitro model heart can be used to test prosthetic valves in compliant conduits to simulate left ventricular outflow tracts.
Available in the following sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, and 29 mm ID.
The percutaneous entry components allow for catheter access and valve deployment into the Model Left Heart’s simulated aorta.
This precision, handheld, digital pressure reference manometer allows for convenient calibration of pressure transducers.
