The IX-100B Data Acquisition System is a single channel recorder that provides a cost-effective, high performance solution for dedicated applications such as Langendorff or working heart preps where only one biopotential recording channel is required.
The IX-100B has one isolated input channel and is equipped with a low voltage stimulator and an audio output. This recorder delivers the high resolution/low noise performance required for small animal cardiovascular research, Oocyte clamp nerve recording.
Resolution and Noise
The IX-100B uses a 16-bit A/D converter to sample data over its full input range of ±1V at speeds up to 200 kHz. Its low noise greatly reduces the need for gain and offset.
The IX-100B offers a wide selection of low pass and high pass filters* and is safe for human connection.
*IX-100B high pass filter values (MHz): 0.03, 0.3, 3, 30, 100
*IX-100B low pass filter values (MHz): 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 150, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000, 9000, 10000, 20000
±1V, ±250mV, ±125mV, ±50mV, ±25mV, ±12.5mV, ±5mV, ±2.5mV
Low Voltage Stimulator
The IX-100B has a software programmable 16 bit, +/-5V stimulator (DAC). Parameters for stimulator, such as pulse width, frequency and amplitude, may be changed “on-the-fly” using handy controls located in the LabScribe2™ software tool bar. Standard protocols include Pulse, Train, Step, Triangle and Ramp. In applications involving isolated heart, the stimulator may be programmed for pacing.
The IX-100B recorder is controlled by LabScribe2 software, a powerful recording and analysis software package. LabScribe2 has an intuitive, user-friendly interface for setting up acquisition screens, calibrating signals and analyzing data. Up to 128 channels of data can be displayed simultaneously at sampling rates as high as 100,000 samples/second.
A comprehensive set of analysis routines have been pre-configured making data analysis and interpretation quick and easy. Specific analysis modules for cardiovascular research are available to analyze pressure signals, blood flow data, ECG recordings, ventricular pressure-volume loops and sonomicrometry dimension data.
This system includes the IX-100B single channel biopotential amplifier and recorder.
This configuration is a cost-effective solution for those only interested in measuring a single lead of ECG and no other physiological signals simultaneously.
The gain, high-pass filter setting and low-pass filter setting are configured via software.
