Measuring Force in Single Heart Cells

During this webinar, presenters Ben Prosser and Michiel Helmes discuss methodology, best-practices, and show attendees how to attach isolated myocytes to ensure accurate force measurements. In addition, Ben Prosser reviews an application of myocyte stretching and loading. Michiel Helmes discusses the importance of both mechanical loading and measuring force, and how controlling myocyte length to regulate force development enables generation of work loops and a host of mechanical studies. Access the webinar Recording and Slides below.
