Biology Teaching System - Win

BSL System with MP36 and hardware for 17 guided lessons plus 39 dynamic lessons and student-designed Biology experiments. The Biopac Student Lab Biology Teaching System can record signals from cells, organs, insects, animals and human subjects to facilitate a broad spectrum of application opportunities. A wide range of lessons cover the cardiovascular, immune, respiratory, pulmonary, metabolic, digestive and nervous systems. The system has options for pH, dissolved oxygen and calorimetry (connections & software features).

User-friendly hardware, intuitive software and a dynamic user interface promote student inquiry and active learning. The BSL Lab Manual and onscreen guides, with embedded procedure videos and data samples, take you through each step of the experiment and ensure students record great data. The BSL PRO software allows you to easily design research experiments (suitable for undergraduate and graduate levels), and custom student lab lessons (no programming required).
