Data acquisition system specifically configured for epithelial transport (Ussing) studies
Includes amplifiers, digitizer, software, and all cables
Available in 2, 4, 6, and 8 channel systems
Easily expanded up to 8 channels
Runs under Windows and Mac OS
Free software updates
The UssingChart data acquisition package is a complete system that includes EC-825A amplifier(s), LIH 8+8 digitizer(s), UssingChart software, and all needed connecting cables. It's natively available in 2, 4, 6, or 8 channels and can be easily scaled up to its full capacity of eight channels.
The UssingChart software is the heart of the system and allows for full control of the amplifiers during acquisition. Data is displayed in real time and is saved for later review or export. Exported data is compatible with a wide variety of data analysis and graphing programs.
The UssingChart software is based on HEKA's Chartmaster and has been fully configured specifically for epithelial research applications. Furthermore, perpetual software updates are available via the Chartmaster section of the HEKA website.
EC-825A Epithelial Voltage Clamp Amplifier
The EC-825A is specifically designed for studies of epithelial transport and the electrical properties of tissue. It features high common mode rejection, multiple clamp speed selection, membrane resistance measurement circuitry, and a watertight headstage that includes a model membrane.
Detailed description and specifications can be found on our EC-825A page.
LIH 8+8 Digitizer
The UssingChart software is specifically designed to work with HEKA's LIH 8+8 digitizer. The LIH 8+8 is a high resolution, low-noise scientific data acquisition apparatus that utilizes the latest USB 2.0 and high speed processing technologies. The sample rate is up to 200 KHz and two LIH's can be linked, which doubles the number of analog inputs and outputs.
