New “Smart Amplifiers” make it easier than ever for life science researchers to get great data
Fast Setup & High Performance
Smart Amplifiers improve performance by amplifying the physiological signal close to the subject, which allows a high-level voltage connection to the data acquisition system and reduces noise artifact.
Record data (and automatically pre-configured derived measures) for a wide variety of life science measures:
Biopotential Smart Amps: ECG (Heart rate, RR interval, and R-wave amplitude), EEG(Alpha, Beta, Theta, Delta, Gamma), EGG, EMG and fEMG (Integrated EMG, RMS), EOG (Derivative), ERS
New! Impedance Amps: NICO (impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ) for noninvasive cardiac output measurements), EBI (Electrical Bioimpedance: Magnitude and Phase; Derived dZ/dt)
AcqKnowledge Smart Amp setup includes guides and prompts to prevent errors. Plus, channels are automatically set to be plotted and included in input values display, with the initial visual range set to the min/max input range for that Smart Amplifier signal type, in appropriate units.
The RSP Respiration Smart Amplifier is specifically designed for recording signals from a respiration transducer for direct physical measurement of respiratory effort. The amp works with the transducer to measure abdominal or thoracic expansion and contraction while breathing and permits DC coupling for the recording of respiratory effort signals of arbitrarily low frequency.

BIOPAC provides researchers with a complete range of tools to gather data on heart rate variability (HRV). The following studies demonstrate just some of the ways in which HRV research benefits from the implementation of BIOPAC hardware and software solutions. PTSD and HRV Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has been associated with dysfunction of the autonomic […]
