BSL Animal Systems

Small Animal & Intro to Human Physiology Teaching System

The Biopac Student Lab Animal Physiology & Intro Human Physiology Teaching System provides a wide range of options for animal, tissue, and basic human physiology experiments. Many lessons allow students to study both animal and human species for comparative physiology teaching programs.

  • 30 lessons targeted for Animal & Intro. Human Phys.
  • ECG, EEG, EMG, EOG & EGG
  • Temperature Gas Analysis
  • CO2 & O2 pO2 pH
  • Bioimpedance & Cardiac Output
  • Force
  • Neurophysiology
  • Hemodynamics
  • Respiratory & Pulmonary Function
  • Reaction Time
  • Nerve Recordings & Compound Action Potentials
  • Membrane Transport (drug delivery)
  • Tissue Baths
  • Stimulation & Response
  • Isolated Heart, Lung, Muscle
  • Auditory, Somatosensory & Visual Evoked Response
  • Compatible with Crawdad Lab Manual

Students can work with frogs, earthworms, and other animals while studying the heart, muscle function, and membrane potential. Increase your lab options by adding on the Gas Analysis System (GASSYS2-EA) and analyze expired O2 and CO2 from both animals and humans.  Add on the dissolved O2 probe (RXPROBE-O2) and measure the oxygen consumption of a goldfish!
