"The Axon Digidata® 1440A Digitizer is a low-noise high-resolution 16-bit data acquisition system for electrophysiology recordings. It is self-contained and communicates with the host computer via a USB 2.0 interface for extremely easy installation and setup. Designed for fast results, the Digidata 1440A Digitizer comes with AxoScope software for Microsoft Windows OS and is ready to acquire data immediately after installation. Absolutely no programming is necessary.
The Digidata 1440A Digitizer features a maximum sampling rate of 250 kHz per channel, with an outstanding total data throughput rate of 4 mega-samples per second. This enables you to capture even the fastest signals in the biorelevant frequency range. Both the inherent digitizer noise and channel crosstalk noise are rated at less than ±1 mV average p-p at 10 kHz, within a ±10 V input range, making the Digidata 1440A System one of the quietest digitizers on the market.
For intuitive setup, the front panel is clearly laid out with sixteen analog input channels and four analog output channels, eight general digital outputs, one dedicated digital output to trigger devices such as oscilloscopes, as well as trigger inputs to start acquisition and to tag data. The back panel has four additional analog instrument telegraph inputs, as well as a DB-25 connector for the digital outputs."
Retractable Protein Nanoneedles The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.A Crystal Clear View of Biomolecules Fundamental discovery triggers paradigm shift in crystallography.Could the Food we Eat Affect Our Genes? Almost all of our genes may be influenced by the food we eat, according to new research.NIH Seeks Research Applications to Study Zika in Pregnancy, Developing Fetus Institute has announced that the new effort seeks to understand virus effect on reproduction and child development.Iron in the Blood Could Cause Cell Damage Concentrations of iron similar to those delivered through standard treatments can trigger DNA damage within 10 minutes, when given to cells in the laboratory.
