The C-Pace EM is a multi-mode, multi-channel stimulator designed to drive both chronic stimulation and mechanical stretch of bulk quantities of cells in culture incubators. The C-Pace EM model provides all the various electrophysiology features such as constant variation in frequency, insertion of periodic off beats and programmable frequency changes that were available in the earlier C-Pace EP. Additionally, the EM version allows control of C-Stretch electromechanical stimulation units as well as C-Dish electrode assemblies. The EM also offers simple USB communication with the new, easy-to-use C-Pace Navigator control software. Coupled with either the C-Dish or C-Stretch (or both), the C-Pace EM and C-Pace Navigator make up a complete Culture Pacing System.
This pacer offers fully programmable multi-step sequence protocols can have up to five different pacing and stretching steps – useful for exercise protocols. For electrical stimulation, it emits biphasic stimuli, greatly reducing electrolysis at the electrodes. It has an output voltage of +/- 40 V, a frequency from once every 100 seconds to 99 pulses/sec, and a pulse duration of 0.4 to 24 msec. The EM has flexible pacing protocols that have been designed on request by customers who want to study the effects of arrhythmia or exercise protocols during culture. Gate and Aux outputs allow for increased functionality when used as an acute pacer.
