Fast data acquisition and analysis

The battery powered FAST16MkIII records electrochemical data (amperometry, chronoamperometry), from up to 8 independent channels, digital (event), and marker information and generates waveforms for experimental control.  With high-speed data capture at rates up to 1.2 MHz with 16-bit resolution.

Windows 7 software and improved analysis package for greater productivity.


Direct in vivo neurochemical measures on a second-by-second basis in acute and chronic recordings.  For experimental non-clinical use only.
