  • Record sweeps of waveform and marker data, free-running or time-locked to a stimulus or response
  • Perform analysis on-line and off-line including waveform averaging (with error bars), power spectra and amplitude histograms

  • Detect and measure waveform features in raw data and average result views and generate measurement both on and off-line in XY views or channels in the data file
  • Mark detected features and events. Markers can be added interactively, by automated measurement processes or by a script
  • Generate simple and complex protocols of waveform and digital output and modify the output interactively even while sampling
  • Automatic triggered script execution at defined times before, during or after a sampled sweep. Scripts can be used to take measurements, report results and update further outputs.

Automated action potential analysis

  • Derive 'virtual channels' defined by user-supplied expressions for channel arithmetic, spectral analysis and stimulus waveform generation
  • Easily manipulate data using menu or keyboard driven functions. Options include rectification, DC removal, smoothing rescaling and time shift
  • Automate and customise analyses and repetitive tasks
  • Digitally filter (FIR and IIR) via interactive dialogs or scripts
  • Configure multiple views of the same data file and overlay data from multiple sweeps and channels, even during sampling
  • Design stimulus outputs graphically, react very quickly to sampled data and apply complex interaction between inputs and outputs with scripts

Action potentials simulated by dynamic clamp

  • Analyse whole-cell voltage and current clamp (leak subtraction, curve fitting) and single channel patch clamp analysis (open/closed time, burst duration histograms etc.)
  • Apply curve fitting using a variety of fit equations; fit coefficients can be plotted automatically to an XY view
  • Simulate ion channels, leaks and synapses with built-in high speed dynamic clamping support. Up to 15 clamping models can be used concurrently when sampling.
  • Import data files recorded with other acquisition systems. Formats include Axon, EDF, HEKA, ASCII and binary
  • Export data to other applications as text, binary or image files, write .mat files to export data to MATLAB®. The Signal data format (CFS) is freely available to programmers wishing to read and write Signal data files
