This zip file contains a short kiosk-style presentation (self-advancing). It gives a general outline of the components assembled in the IonOptix Myocyte Recording System. Our complete systems record calcium, sarcomere, and cell length at acquisition rates as high as 1000Hz. Our flexible hardware platform allows several A/D and D/A connections for other devices (temperature, chart recorders, etc.). Included with the acquisition software is our analysis program for rapid event averaging and data fitting as well as percent cell shortening and contraction/relaxation velocities. Software is completely documented with online, context-sensitive help.
