Measuring the Relationship between Force, Energy Consumption and Calcium Concentrations in Muscle Fibers using WPI-SIH Research Systems
Historically, a light source, filter wheel and photomultiplier were used to excite the dye at the proper wavelength. Now, using LED modules, we have much greater control over the measurement cycle. You can set the length of time each LED fires and establish the firing sequence. In addition, you can define the intensity of the LED signals, determine the number of readings used to calculate the rolling average of the ratio displayed, and set the photomultiplier filter frequency.
