BSL Pharmacology System data

The Biopac Student Lab Pharmacology and Toxicology Core Discipline package combines a range of experiment options for cardiovascular hemodynamics, respiratory system, pulmonary function, in vitro tissue and cellular studies. The new range of tissue bath stations provides an extra level of functionality for in vitro tissue experiments. Powerful, real-time analysis functions for pressure recordings include systolic, diastolic, mean BP, and dP/dt max and min. Similar automated functions are available to perform force analysis functions including peak, duration and derivative. Add the bioimpedance cardiac output module to record stroke volume and cardiac output. The software provides students with research-grade analysis features in a user-friendly and meaningful format.

The Biopac Student Lab Pharmacology and Toxicology Core Discipline package is part of a complete, flexible teaching system that not only allows the study of the most widely studied responses in Pharmacology and Toxicology, but also provides life science educators with an integrated system of hardware, software, and curriculum which increases student engagement and provides extensive instructor support–before, during, and after the lab. Dynamic experiments with students as subjects increase interest and retention. Basic lessons guide and prompt students. Promote student inquiry with advanced options or develop user-defined lessons and research projects. Extensive customization options, including the Curriculum Management System licensed feature, allow instructors an unprecedented level of control over lesson content and presentation.

Features

Suitable for inquiry-based, active learning in 2-yr. and 4-yr. programs, medical schools, and nursing programs. Powerful setup and analysis tools make the BSL ideal for graduate studies and personal research.
