Inotiv specializes in the myocardial infarction rat model. The procedure is completed by modifying the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery to create a reduced ejection fraction (EF) of 40% or below. Inotiv performs the myocardial infarction procedure consistently with minimal standard deviations of ejection fraction (EF) across all cohorts, and delivers acceptable models required with the avoidance of adhesions, infections, and lung damage.
