GASSYS3 System

Obtaining accurate and reproducible metabolic data, such as oxygen consumption (VO2), carbon dioxide production (VCO2) and respiratory exchange ratio (RER), from research participants at rest and during exercise provides detailed insights regarding human response and physiology. These measurements are extremely important to many research disciplines including exercise physiology, sports science, biomedical engineering, psychophysiology, and various consumer neuroscience applications.

However, traditional methods of recording metabolic data in humans offer a myriad of challenges: most prominently, extensive and complex calibration processes, cumbersome operation and prohibitive costs. In contrast, BIOPAC’s new Metabolic System is an accurate, compact, and affordable turn-key solution for both research and physiology education applications. In developing this system, BIOPAC has uncovered a new way to easily obtain great metabolic data.

During this webinar, Frazer Findlay and William McMullen will

Key topics covered during this webinar will include…

  • Theory of operation
  • Challenges with traditional gas analysis/metabolic data measurement solutions
  • Setup & measurement using the new BIOPAC GASSYS3
  • Participant preparation strategies for ensuring quality recordings
  • Leveraging specific analysis features found in AcqKnowledge Software for metabolic research

New Scent Delivery System for Research

Researchers can now easily add an olfactory element to expand general psychophysiology studies, enrich virtual and augmented environments, or examine how scent perception affects a variety of applications. BIOPAC’s new Scent Delivery System (SDS200-SYS), connects to an MP160 Research System with AcqKnowledge, and delivers up to eight scents to participants.

You Will Learn How To:
• Add olfactory stimulation to any experiment
• Optimize setup to get the best results
• Combine different types of stimulation
