Theory

Moor Instruments designs and manufactures laser Doppler systems and accessories to investigate blood flow in the microcirculation. The laser Doppler technique is well established as the most convenient means of assessing tissue blood flow non invasively and continuously. Both Monitoring and Imaging systems are available.

Monitoring allows continuous assessment of flow at one or more sites with the use of optic probes in contact with the tissue.

Laser Doppler imaging is a non contact technique and a laser beam is used rather than transmitting light with optic probes (used in monitoring).

Accessories are available to investigate the effect of thermal and drug stimulation on the microcirculation.
