How to Prepare and Assess Living Myocardial Slices: A Workshop
Living Myocardial Slices (LMS) are a novel preparation of intermediate complexity that can be used to study heart biology. LMS possess complex 3D structure, heterocellularity and intact extracellular matrix that makes them ideal for functional and structural studies. LMS can be prepared from several species, including human. Multiple slices can be produced from each biopsy, producing several samples for experimentation. LMS are highly viable, stable in culture and can be used for toxicology and pharmacology experiments, to study pathophysiology and treatments for cardiac disease.
