Animal Replacement Technologies announced today the launch of their second-generation arterial lesions. These lesions are more sophisticated that the original chronic total occlusion models, and are designed to integrate with the company's current peripheral, coronary, and cerebral vascular products. these may be mounted in straight or branched sections as small as 1mm in diameter, may be softcap or hardcap, chronic total occlusions or characterized by a particular TIMI flow, and either discrete or infiltrated with synthetic arterial intima. These products may also be custom fabricated to client specifications.

Animal Replacement Technologies, based in Sarasota, Florida, develops sophisticated synthetic human tissues and body parts for the medical device, consumer product, and pharmaceutical industries. These patented products employ replacable muscles, tendons, veins, arteries, and organs, all made from novel materials that mimic the structural, chemical, and mechanical properties of living tissue. Our models are currently used by Fortune 500 medical device manufacturers in design verification and validation tests, by medical professionals in surgical training, and by military manufacturers in armor and weapons development.

Medical product designers, researchers, and educators also use Animal Replacement Technologies' products to perform highly compelling comparative benchmarking studies. These tests allow scientists to highlight performance differences between prototype variants or prototypes and previously released devices. Used in this capacity, our modeling technology is the best tool available for supporting substantial equivalence claims to the FDA.

Unlike commonly available anatomical models, "our products contain no rubber, glass, or plastic", says Dr. Christopher Sakezles, the President of Animal Replacement Technologies. "Our extensive library of synthetic human tissue analogs is designed on the basis of tests performed on live tissue, and just like the real thing these analogs are composed primarily of water, fiber, and salt."

The synthetic human tissues made by Animal Replacement Technologies represent the most sophisticated modeling technology available in the world today, with products that are generations beyond any other commercially available technology.
