muscle extraction for experimental purpose

Recommended Posts

I've read many papers about muscle and more specifically, myocytes contractility and and excitation. The question is, will it be possible to extract muscle from the body and experiment on it dependently ? Or does it have to be strictly in vivo ?

The term you are looking for is Ex Vivo;

So it is possible, myoblasts cultured and differentiated can also be seen to contract sometimes (however these are single muscle cells so not useful for your purposes, but just an interesting thing).
