Considered the industry standard in neuroscience research labs, the new Digidata 1550 Platform 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 analog 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, whilst achieving a total data throughput rate of 4 mega-samples per second. Independent analog-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.
We will also be hosting 3 pCLAMP™ workshops during the week of 27th May in Bordeaux, Lausanne and Oxford. These workshops are designed to bring together both customers and those with an interest in our Axon™ products. Topics that will be covered include protocol writing, action potential analysis and analysis of synaptic events.
