MyoStretcher: Record Force from Isolated Cardiac Myocytes!

IonOptix is proud to announce the release of our next generation MyoStretcher System, which now uses our revolutionary New Optical Force Transducer, the OptiForce. Designed specifically for force measurement in cardiomyocytes, it is now the most sensitive system on the market for measuring forces from isolated intact myocytes!

We’ve developed the MyoStretcher with a focus on simplicity, ease-of-use, and reliability. The MyoStretcher includes all of the necessary components to stretch as well as record force in isolated myocytes.  In addition to the sensitive force transducer, motorized micro-manipulators and all component fittings, we also offer an optional piezo-electric translator for programmable stretching and a kit to facilitate attachment of glass rods to the MyoStretcher arms.

Use the MyoStretcher to investigate:

  • Accurate diastolic calcium

  • Auxotonic and isometric contractions

  • Length-dependent activation

  • Force‐velocity relationship

  • Workloops in single cells


Every system comes with on-site installation and training so you can get the most out of your system immediately!

The MyoStretcher can be configured as a stand-alone system or as a modular add-on for your existing IonOptix Myocyte Calcium and Contractility System. Look up the MyoStretcher and Measuring WorkLoops Webinars for more info on this application!
