Versatile electrical stimulator for providing cardiac-like electrical impulses in vitro
In the perspective of reliable methods alternative to in vivo animal testing for cardiac tissue engineering (CTE) research, the versatile electrical stimulator ELETTRA has been developed. ELETTRA delivers controlled and stable cardiac-like electrical impulses, and it can be coupled to already existing bioreactors for providing in vitro combined biomimetic culture conditions. Designed to be cost-effective and easy to use, this device could contribute to the reduction and replacement of in vivo animal experiments in CTE.
