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
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.
Basic principles of physiological data collection covers fundamentals of data collection and equipment configuration equipment to help you refine experiment protocols and avoid costly missteps. Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC, discusses common mistakes with physiology recording and shares his secrets for collecting great data. Topics include: How to prep a subject and where to place electrodes; Which type of electrodes work for different body signals; Analog to Digital Conversion; Sample rates (correct vs. incorrect); Filtering; and Scaling and calibration.Watch On Demand Now!
A System to Measure Physiological Response During Social Interaction in VR Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a difficult experience in responding to social cues and actions. This pilot study measured the effectiveness of Virtual Reality in creating a social environment for children, measured with a BIOPAC MP Series data acquisition system and Worldviz […]
