PIV Load Assembly (Customized Only)

Product Code: 21026

PIV Load Assemblies provide optically clear test chambers to enable Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) studies in the ViVitro Labs Pulse Duplicator or other mock circulatory loop systems.  In the ViVitro Labs Pulse Duplicator, the PIV Load Assembly can replace the lower half of the standard aortic load assembly and is easily substituted into the ViVitro Labs Pulse Duplicator. Customized PIV Load Assemblies can be designed to mitral and tricuspid valve prosthesis.  Most PIV Load Assemblies must be customized to fit specific client valve size and geometry.  The ViVitro Labs team provides the necessary expertise and the development process to design PIV Load Assembly for optimum PIV test results.  All customized PIV Load Assembly are tested under pulsatile flow conditions using client samples to check for valve compatibility.
