The flexiVent & COVID-19


The flexiVent is an advanced pulmonary research platform highly adapted to assist in COVID-19 preclinical experimentation.

The flexiVent measures detailed lung function outcomes in SARS-CoV-2 infected animals, LPS-induced ARDS models, genetic knock-outs and treatment groups, allowing scientists to test their hypotheses in complex organisms that closely recapitulate human biology.
