ViVitest Data Acquisition System (DAS)

Product Code: 08530, Related Part Numbers: 08311 I/O Module, AP9991 AmPack

ViVitest is part of the ViVitro Data Acquisition System (DAS) family of software products. Combined with the Pulse Duplicator System it collects hydrodynamic testing data to meet ISO 5840 requirements. ViVitest software controls the SuperPump pulsatile pump while simultaneously measuring pressure and flow data. It monitors, processes, and reports data such as regurgitant fraction, effective orifice area (EOA), and other valve performance indicators.

A calibration wizard walks new users through the set-up process for quick system preparation for testing. Output files are available in .CSV format for easy analysis in Excel and MatLab. The ViViTest control system inputs a waveform to the SuperPump pulsatile pump while the data acquisition system captures and analyzes physiological pressures and valve flow rates.

QCtest Software

Product Code: 26066

ViVitro QCtest checks valve performance against user defined acceptance criteria. It is a turn-key, validated function test software system. The software is easy to use and can be paired with a specific Production Tester Load Assembly on the ViVitro Pulse Duplicator, for quick valve change-outs. This combination is a ready-to use solution for one of the most time-consuming aspects of production to validate.

The QCtest software system was developed as a quality control tool for QC performance testing (function testing) of cardiovascular devices such as heart valves. This production tool provides fast, reliable results at a fraction of the cost of designing and validating an in-house system. Features:
  • Pass or fail criteria definable using a secure log-in
  • Automatically saves pass/fail results along with a report of each test and video
  • User definable system calibration intervals
  • Simple user interface

It really is like an industry standard.  I love the machine.
