The Power of AcqKnowledge

AcqKnowledge is used by thousands of labs around the world and has been cited in thousands of peer reviewed publications. It runs on both the latest Windows and Mac operating systems to provide a phenomenal data acquisition and analysis platform.

ACQ Graph

AcqKnowledge is an interactive, intuitive program that lets you instantly view, measure, transform, replay and analyze data. Perform complex data acquisition, stimulation, triggering and analyses using simple pull-down menus and dialogs—no need to learn a programming language or new protocol.

Online analysis settings, filters, and transformations provide real-time feedback, or you can choose from a wide variety of off-line analysis tools. Multiple display options are available during and after acquisition—just click on an icon to flip between Chart, Scope, X/Y, Overlapped segments, Histogram, or FFT.

AcqKnowledge is licensed for a single user for use on one MP System—to use multiple MP Systems, see the Site License Program.
