Heart Valve Durability Tester

Heart Valve
Durability Tester

Accelerated wear testing
for replacement heart valves

Automatic Dual Control Technology (ADC)
Greater accuracy, less manual interaction saves time

ADC automates individual test module stroke and pressure control.

  • Dedicated linear electromagnetic motor utilizes position feedback for consistent
    heart valve opening.
  • By-pass restrictor with patented control algorithm automatically maintains valve
    differential pressure.
  • Continuous real-time data analysis counts every ISO cycle and yields 0% count error.

A prewired controller unit and data acquisition system accommodates any combination of up to 6 test modules.

Transparent customizable test chambers are designed for maximum flexibility to fit any valve size and geometry with optimum inflow, outflow, and lateral visibility on test samples.

ViVitro’s Heart Valve Durability Tester with ADC Technology has independent test modules that enable fast, easy interchangeability of test samples and system components with minimum disruptions to adjacent on-going test modules.

Automatic Dual Control technology maintains valve loading conditions throughout the entire test for up to 6 individually controlled chambers.

Flow Loop System autonomously runs under a low hydrostatic pressure head, which decreases the load on all seals and bellows. No external pressure source or compressor is required.
