Molecular Devices' next generation Axon Digidata 1550 Low-Noise Data Acquisition System enables the parallel patching of up to eight cells simultaneously to provide better insight of neuronal network function and capture more data points per experiment.
This new system extends the precision and quality of the existing Axon Digitizer platform to include a higher sampling rate to monitor rapid responders, combined with enhanced performance in low-noise, high resolution 16-bit data acquisition.
The Digidata 1550 Digitizer features eight independent analogue output channels to simultaneously send command waveforms to multiple cells at one time, essential for higher throughput toxicology experiments or to study synaptic function in complex neuronal networks.
Combined with a sampling rate of up to 500 kHz per channel, the Digidata 1550 Digitizer allows researchers to gather more data points in demanding experiments such as nanopore and bilayer studies. This rapid rate monitors the fastest of signals in the biorelevant frequency range, while achieving a total data throughput rate of 4 mega-samples per second. Independent analogue-to-digital converters for each input channel also ensure low crosstalk levels and high data acquisition rates, making the system one of the quietest digitizers on the market.
Designed for intuitive set-up and fast results, the Digidata 1550 Digitizer comes with AxoScope Data Acquisition Software for Microsoft Windows OS (Windows 7 32- or 64-bit) and is ready to acquire data immediately after installation - absolutely no programming is necessary.
