BSL access for Professors and Students
Bring Your Lab to Your Students
BSL-HOME is a complete physiology lab solution for both students and instructors
New “Learn & Return” program offers schools a way to provide a practical lab component to students outside of the lab.
BIOPAC is introducing Biopac Student Lab Home (BSL-HOME)—a new product specifically geared towards teaching physiology labs remotely. BSL-HOME will allow your students to conduct physiology labs in the safety of their own home, dorm room, or any remote location.
BSL-HOME can help you teach hands-on physiology labs while Coronavirus concerns require social distancing or stay-at-home orders.
BSL Review Saved Data (RSD) software allows students to review all core lesson introductions, procedures and analysis reports. They can also access both Lesson and PRO sample data sets, or data that you might record and forward to them. Students can then complete the corresponding lab report and submit it via Dropbox or university e-mail/file sharing service.
You are also free to load BSL RSD to the school/class intranet for your students. The selected RSD version must match the BSL version used in the lab. Files saved with the BSL RSD can be opened in the corresponding full program but are not compatible with earlier releases.
If you need to run AcqKnowledge but can’t access your USB key for authorization, BIOPAC can help.
If you have version 5.0.2 or higher installed:
♦ Launch AcqKnowledge.

♦ In the new dialog box, click the “Copy Challenge to Clipboard” button:
♦ Paste the Challenge into an e-mail message to support. and add OS and sales info: Windows users: use Ctrl-v to paste Mac users: use command-v to paste
Apple Mail users: paste the string into TextEdit or some other editor or word processor, then copy the string from there and paste into the e-mail message. Otherwise, in place of the Challenge string, Apple Mail will insert a blank Contact card into the message.
Include in your message whether your computer is running Windows or Mac OS, and information that will allow us to find a record of the sale—ideally an invoice or sales order number, but minimally the individual, department, and institution to which the system was sold.
If you have version 5.0.0 or 5.0.1 of AcqKnowledge installed, or if you did not install on the computer you need to use, you may download version 5.0.5 for Mac or Windows.
To install on Windows, uncompress the file and run BIOPACSetup.exe; to install on Mac, double-click the file to uncompress, then double-click the resulting .pkg file.
Once AcqKnowledge is installed, follow the first set of instructions above.
If your license is for an earlier version, you can easily upgrade your license of AcqKnowledge to 5.0.5 and talk with support about your remote needs.
