MP System Comparison: MP150 vs. MP100

MP150/UIM was replaced by MP160/HLT in August 2016
BIOPAC Research Systems were updated from MP150/UIM to MP160/HLT in August 2016

Sophisticated solutions for data acquisition and analysis

Each MP System (MP100 or MP150) is a complete and expandable data acquisition system that functions like an on-screen chart recorder, oscilloscope and X/Y plotter, allowing you to record, view, save and print data. It includes all the necessary hardware and software required to turn any computer into a powerful data acquisition workstation specifically designed for life science applications.

To put together a system for your specific needs, pick a Starter System and then add the amplifier modules, transducers, and electrodes to match your research design.

Since the MP System takes advantage of the capabilities of your computer, it’s as powerful as larger and more expensive data acquisition systems, but has a familiar, easy-to-use graphical interface.

The MP System will reduce your equipment setup time and increase the quality of your results. By harnessing the power of your computer, the MP System gives you publication-quality results with a minimum of effort.

The MP150 high-speed data acquisition system uses the very latest in Ethernet technology. The MP150 is compliant with any Ethernet-ready PC or Mac. This next-generation product takes full advantage of cutting-edge technology. Access multiple MP150 devices located on a local area network and record data to any computer connected to the same LAN. Record and analyze your data at an aggregate sample rate of 400,000 samples per second. Use variable sample rates to maximize storage efficiency and to guarantee you won’t miss a thing.
