Event Marker with safety connector for use with IX-Bxx or iWire-Bxx


SKU: EM-BIO Category:


The IX-BIO4-SA system is optimized for mouse, rats and other rodents.

The IX-BIO4-SA system includes:

  • IX-BIO4 recorder
  • C-ISO-GNE5: a set of 5 platinum needle 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-SA 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 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.
