Citing VasoTracker

Support our work

VasoTracker is a collection of open source hardware and software – it was made possible by grant funding from the Wellcome Trust and British Heart Foundation. Our ability to support, develop and maintain VasoTracker will depend on more grants, so whether you use a complete VasoTracker system, just some of the components, or the software, please cite our work in your scientific publications.
