Engage students and develop critical thinking skills
Part #: SCILAB-I, SCILAB-I5
Biopac Science Lab System with MP40 allows high school students to display, record, and analyze data from their own bodies from 11 different physiology lessons. This approach promotes scientific inquiry and student participation and engages student minds to develop critical thinking skills through real and exciting lab experiences.
The software includes a series of guided science lessons for students to record and analyze their own heart signals (ECG), brain waves (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), and eye movement (EOG).
Lessons support national science standards and easily align with Biology textbooks.
The software guides students with on-screen instructions and prompts.
The system includes detailed lesson plans that guide the student through self-paced and independent investigative experiments.
Students can work in isolation or as part of a team and compare results.
Analysis incorporates mathematical tools and models to guide and improve the posing of questions, gathering data, constructing explanations and communicating results.
The unit complies with all the latest international safety standards. The system easily connects to a Windows-based PC—just plug it in like it’s a pair of headphones.
Student excitement builds as they see their own data and begin to explore the fundamentals behind the signals.
Fully Engage Students
Students record data from their own bodies, analyze it, and compare results with other students.
Fast, Easy Set-Up & Operation
Simple, hand-held equipment. Lessons written by and for teachers. Easy-to-follow tutorial lessons.
Designed for the secondary education classroom
Connects to any Windows® computer. Robust, easy-to-use system. See and hear EMG signals.
The handheld Biopac Science Lab MP40 unit connects to the computer via Line-In. If a computer does not have a built-in Line-In jack, an external USB audio adapter can be used (such as USB-SOUND ). Audio line-in is not the same as headphones; see Adapter Compatibility for details.

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
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 in monitoring respiration and cardiovascular activity. The coupling between peripheral microcirculation and slow breathing: The purpose of this study was to investigate the coupling of breathing movements and microcirculatory blood […]
