The IX-BIO4-LA system is optimized for Humans and other Large Animals.
The IX-BIO4-LA system includes:
- IX-BIO4 recorder
- C-ISO-SL7: a set of 7 snap electrodes.
- C-PB-P1 :Piggy-Back Male/Female Safety Pin Connector to Single Female Safety Pin Connector
- LabScribe ECG Analysis module
The IX-BIO4 is a Four Channel Biopotential Amplifier that allows multiple channels of EMG, ECG, EOG to be recorded simultaneously from a single subject. The recorder is furnished with LabScribe Recording and Analysis Software and connects directly to a USB port on either a Macintosh or Windows PC.
IX-BIO8-LA is a 8 channel system.
ECG signals can be measured with the IX-BIOx. Measuring 2 channels of ECG, Lead I and Lead II allows LabScribe software to calculate Lead III, aVR, aVF and aVL . EMG signals can be measured at the same time as the ECG signals.
- ECG 01 – ECG Protocol Set-up
- ECG 02 – Rat ECG Preparation
- ECG 03 – ECG Recording
- ECG 04 – ECG Analysis
Kinesiology is the study of human and nonhuman animal-body movements, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. When studying kinesiology, surface electromyography (sEMG or Surface EMG) is the measurement of choice. The IX-BIOx enables 4 channels of EMG recordings, or a combination of EMG and ECG recordings.

LabScribe ECG Analysis Module
iWorx LabScribe ECG Software Module is a powerful and user-friendly tool intended to automate the analysis of ECG data from a variety of species.
- Measure R-R, PR, QT, QR and QTc intervals, QRS, T, P and TP durations, P, Q, R, S, T amplitudes and ST elevation, etc…
- Specific analysis templates are included to accurately delineate PQRST onset, durations and amplitudes
- Custom templates can also be created based on unique ECG profiles and saved to a library for future use
- Beat averaging and classification
- Outlier removal based on abnormal R-R intervals, heart rate, noise and activity
- Easily extract source data and average data as images or text files
- Plug and play compatible with all iWorx data acquisition
- Optional ASCII Text Import Module is also available that enables import of ECG data in text or edf format that was recorded by any other acquisition program
Heart Rate Variability
Kubios HRV – Heart Rate Variability Analysis Software is an advanced tool for studying the variability of heart beat intervals. Data can be exported from LabScribe using the edf export option and then imported into Kubios HRV for analysis, as shown in this technote
LabScribe Import Module
The iWorx ASCII Import Module enables import of data in text format that was recorded in any other data acquisition program. The module also allows the researcher to use the analysis functions in LabScribe software on data they may have previously recorded with a different program. Detailed information about using the modules is in the LabScribe Manual
