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.
The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
