Practical, Technology-Based Experiments for Students
Biopac Science Lab is a complete life science teaching system that follows scientific methods to study muscle, heart, brain, eyes, respiration, reaction time, biofeedback, aerobic exercise physiology, and more! Now life science instructors and students at the high school level can explore the inner workings of the human body with a new, inexpensive physiology monitor and practical science experiments, specifically designed for high school life science classes and using students as the subjects.
BIOPAC is a leader in the field of life science research and education data acquisition with over 20 years of experience
BIOPAC education systems are used in premier university and college undergraduate biology and physiology lab programs—over 5 million successful lab hours
BIOPAC research products are used in labs around the world and cited in over 20,000 peer-reviewed scientific articles and papers
The Biopac Science Lab bridges the gap between high school and college by making the same physiology recording technology available at an earlier stage.The Biopac Science Lab brings practical science experiments to the classroom and engages student minds with exciting and fun science-based lessons that teach them today and prepare them for tomorrow. Students collect data from their own bodes, analyze it, and compare results with other students.
Tutorial-style lessons introduce each scientific concept and guide students through simple procedures to record and analyze good data.

fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allow for research teams to record and analyze respiration activity in physiological experimentation. Here are a few notable studies covering HRV, EMG, and EEG measurement. HRV (Jing Wei, Hong Luo, Si J. Wu, Paul P. Zheng, Genyue Fu, and Kang Lee) Humans encounter various stressful situations everyday at work, home, and school. Such stress when experienced at high degrees and/or […]
Alan Macy Answers Proust Questionnaire BIOPAC co-founder and R&D Director, Alan Macy, was interviewed recently by Roger Durling for the Santa Barbara Independent. The article, “The S.B. Questionnaire: Alan Macy,” provided a background excerpt of the Santa Barbara entrepreneurs’ past as well as his answers to the Proust Questionnaire. The biomedical technology developed at BIOPAC reflects an ambitious […]
