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.

Circuit Design

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.

Digital i/o

8 digital inputs and 8 digital output are available. The Digital output can be preset to output a pattern, just like the stimulator.

The iWorx IX-TA-220 with automated functions is like having another teaching assistant in your lab.

Here are just a few of the many advantages offered by the TA kits:

  • Integrated pre-calibrated sensors (spirometer, grip force, blood pressure, and temperature sensors) streamline set-up
  • Built-in high voltage stimulator for human striated muscle experiments and more
  • On-board barometric pressure sensor ensures the highest accuracy for your spirometry lab
  • Unique iWire digital interface adds plug and play ease as well as quieter signals for ECG, EMG, EEG and GSR recordings
