In addition to purchase, our equipment is also available through other lower cost shorter term options including DAY IN OUR LAB, ViVitro-conducted feasibility, and regulatory testing.

ViVitro equipment is available for purchase, DAY IN OUR LAB,  and ViVitro-conducted feasibility, and regulatory testing.

ViVitro Conducted Testing Our non-accredited cardiovascular device testing service delivers quicker, less costly preliminary evaluation and feasibility testing. Optimal for clients with a discrete number of tests or insufficient time or personal to lease equipment.

The Pulse Duplicator and Ex Vivo Simulator are most useful for looking at pulsatile hydrodynamic data inside the heart. The Pulse Duplicator offers higher repeatability and control while the ex vivo offers more realistic anatomy.

The Ex Vivo simulator is used to test transcatheter devices when realistic anatomy is required. Our Lab team can perform mock animal studies using the Ex Vivo simulator to evaluate your device for functional performance.

The Endovascular Simulator is useful for studying applications outside the heart or for accessing delivery catheter performance.

The HiCycle can be used to determine the durability of replacement heart valves and other cardiac devices under physiological loading for R&D and regulatory submissions. The HiCycle allows testing up to 30 Hz (1850 BPM).
