The Isolated perfused lung system for mice is a set of core products that facilitates ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) in fragile mouse lungs for ventilation and perfusion experiments.
The system uses positive or negative pressure ventilation to perfuse the lung placed in the chamber. The procedure involves cannulation of the pulmonary artery and the left atrium. One lung is placed in the chamber under artificial thoracic pressure, whereas the other non-functional lung remains in the thoracic cavity.
The purpose of this system is to keep the lung in physiological conditions for organ transplantation or other respiration-based experiments.
