IX-BIO8-SA: Small Animal ECG/EMG System

IX-BIO8-SA: Small Animal ECG/EMG System

8 Channel Small Animal ECG/EMG Recorder with LabScribe ECG analysis Software

The IX-BIO8-SA system is optimized for small animals.

The IX-BIO8-SA system includes:

  • IX-BIO8 recorder
  • C-ISO-GNE5: a set of 5 platinum needle electrodes.
  • C-PB-P1 :Piggy-Back Male/Female Safety Pin Connector to Single Female Safety Pin Connector
  • LabScribe ECG Analysis module

The IX-BIO8 is a 8 Channel Biopotential Amplifier that allows multiple channels of EMG, ECG, EOG to be recorded simultaneously from a single exercising or resting subject. The recorder is furnished with LabScribe Recording and Analysis Software and connects directly to a USB port on either a Macintosh or Windows PC.

EMG:

Kinesiology is the study of human and nonhuman animal-body movements, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. When studying kinesiology, surface electromyography (sEMG or Surface EMG) is the measurement of choice. The IX-BIOx enables 4/8 channels of EMG recordings, or a combination of EMG and ECG recordings.
