LabTrax 8/16 hardware combined with MDAC software is an excellent choice for WPI's SI-H line of muscle physiology products like the SI-MKB Muscle Platform, SI-CTS Cell Tester and SI-HTB Horizontal Tissue Baths. This data acquisition system is ideal for testing physiological characteristics like the contractile and elastic properties of different tissues in various conditions like isometric, anisometric or isotonic states. This data acquisition system was designed with the muscle researcher in mind, because the knowledge of physiological characteristics of muscles is critical when quantifying the beneficial or adverse effects of a stimulus (like a pharmaceutical drug) on muscle function in pre-clinical studies.
The EVOM2 is the classic, hand-held instrument for making Trans Epithelial Electrical Resistance (TEER) measurements. The REMS system adds a robot and data recording for automated TEER measurements. There may be times when you don't have a robot, but would still like to have the data recording capabilities of the REMS system. With a little ingenuity, you can do just that. Here, we will show you how you can add data recording to your standard EVOM2.
