The Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) found that BIOPAC’s Student Lab System (BSL) and AcqKnowledge software were the number one ranked data acquisition and analysis systems for physiology experiments performed in introductory A&P labs. According to HAPS surveys conducted in 2013 and 2016, BIOPAC products are used and preferred by members in more labs than any other companies.
HAPS conducted the surveys to document the current state of laboratory instructional practices by surveying undergraduate anatomy and physiology instructors. Survey results were published in the HAPS-Educator March 2017 “Special Edition: Lab Instructor Report.” HAPS members can access the study via the HAPS Educator journal website (BIOPAC survey results in Table 21).
The Biopac Student Lab is an integrated system of hardware, software, and curriculum used by thousands of labs worldwide for undergraduate and graduate life science studies. BSL is offered in basic, advanced, and ultimate systems for general life science teaching, or targeted systems for specific departments, such as the BSL Human Physiology Teaching System. Each system comes with components specific to teaching appropriate discipline objectives.
HAPS survey responders were members of HAPS, APS and AAA. Responders came from a variety of life science disciplines: Allied Health (EMT, medical imaging, medical technology, etc.); Kinesiology (physical therapy, sports medicine, health education, etc.); Nursing; Professional (PA, NP, medicine, dentistry, optometry, etc.); Other (dental hygiene, nutrition, etc.)
