The BIK-TA BioInstrumentation Physiology Teaching Kit includes all of the necessary hardware and components, LabScribe software and expertly written courseware to teach 59 experiments in biosensing cardiovascular, respiratory, and neuromuscular physiology. The BIK-TA kit also allows the student to signal condition, biosignals acquired from biosensors.
LabScribe is a powerful recording and analysis software package developed by iWorx. LabScribe has an intuitive, user-friendly interface for setting up acquisition screens, calibrating signals and analyzing data.
iWorx API: Custom applications can be developed for iWorx Hardware using our API. Matlab and LabView can be used to record data from iWorx recorders.
Students can create experiments and study design of add-on circuits using the breadboard. Signal from any input channel of the IX-TA-220 can be routed to the stimulator and sent to the breadboard using the C-BNC-BB cable. Students have the ability to design a custom circuit to condition the signal. The conditioned signal can then be sent back to the IX-TA-220 using the C-DIN-BB cable, allowing the student to compare the raw biosignal and the conditioned signal in LabScribe.
The Stimulator in the IX-TA-220 can be setup to output waveforms, such as a square wave, sine wave ( up to 1kHz), pulses, steps, trains as well as custom waveforms. Create a custom waveform in Excel and paste it into the custom waveform generator, to output a custom waveform. Stimulator feedback channel allows the user to see the stimulator output. Stimulator toolbar allows changes to the protocol during recording.
8 digital inputs and 8 digital output are available. The Digital output can be preset to output a pattern, just like the stimulator.
These Lab Exercises can be performed with the BIK-TA kit. These experiments support courses in Biomedical, Bioengineering, Bioinstrumentation, Signal Conditioning, Physiological systems, etc…
