Set up and recording is streamlined via intuitive hardware and software controls.
AcqKnowledge software utilizes guided channel setting allowing the user to easily input recording channel data. Once parameters are established, recording settings can be saved as a graph template for future use. This allows for instant startup for subsequent recording sessions.
During recording, see real-time live raw ECG data as well as real-time filtering or calculation channels including Heart Rate. Easily insert markers via the computer keyboard for different stimuli presentation or experimental conditions throughout recording. Markers can also be inserted by stimulus presentation programs such as E-Prime or SuperLab using the isolated digital interface (STP100C) or by digital handswitches.
ECG Complex with Complex Boundary Markers in AcqKnowledge
ECG and other physiological data can also be synchronized to video recording via BIOPAC Camera Systems. With Camera Systems ECG data and Video Data are time linked in AcqKnowledge. Simply scroll through either the video or physiological data to be taken to the corresponding data point in the other file.
Physiology and Linked Video Data
After recording, take advantage of fully automated ECG analysis routines in AcqKnowledge. Use guided video tutorials to get the most out of all available analysis tools.
ECG Automated Analysis Package Overview
Detect and Classify Heartbeats
This routine Locates QRS complexes and places an event near the center of each QRS complex identifying the type of heartbeat event.
- Heartbeats are classified as Normal, PVC, or Unknown
See the Detect and Classify Heartbeats routine in action:
Locate ECG Complex Boundaries (Human and/or Animal)
Perform ECG waveform boundary detection for human or animal ECG Lead II signals. Boundaries of the QRS, T, and P waves will be defined and marked for each individual complex. Average heart rate can be configured for small animal studies (e.g. 600 BPM).

Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
Easily calculate HRV and choose from fully customizable result outputs. HRV routine implements a built in QRS detector to mark complexes for RR interval extraction. Choose your FFT windowing type: Hamming, Hanning, or Blackman.
Extracts standard HRV measures from areas of interest or whole recording.
Sympathetic/Vagal ratios can be toggled to include the very low frequency band in the total power estimate.
Flexible output options including RR interval table, tachogram, power spectrum density, and more!
AcqKnowledge software includes automated ECG routines plus dozens of other automated analysis routines and transformation tools.
