The unique ventricular wedge preparation first developed by Dr. Yan has been adopted by many pharmaceutical and biotech companies internationally for cardiac safety assessment. This wedge preparation possesses many advantages over traditional methods to study electrical signals traveling within the heart. Three separate floating microelectrodes are used to record the signals in the outer, mid, and inner regions of the heart. The experimental findings based on the ventricular wedge model have led to several fundamental changes in our thinking as to the origin and maintenance of normal as well as abnormal heart rhythms.

Please contact Dr. Yan at for assessment pricing information.
