Spike2 Expansion: 8 waveform input channels, 2 extra waveform output channels, & 6 event input BNCs

Spike2 Expansion: 8 waveform input channels, 2 extra waveform output channels, & 6 event input BNCs

In some circumstances, such as in many Spike2 applications, the digital inputs and outputs are heavily used for signals. It is convenient to have more of these connectors available on the front panel as BNCs. The 2701-9 top-box provides six event inputs, mapped onto digital inputs 10-15, together with eight ADC inputs and a pair of DACs, mapped onto ADC 8-15 and DAC 2-3 respectively.

Signal Expansion: 8 waveform input channels, 8 waveform output channels, and 2 digital output BNCs

Signal Expansion: 8 waveform input channels, 8 waveform output channels, and 2 digital output BNCs

The Signal program is often used with many waveform channels. The 2701-5 top-box provides eight more ADC inputs and four more DACs, mapped onto ADC 8-15 and DAC 4-7 respectively, with 2 of the original digital outputs, 2 and 3, and 2 of the DACs all available on BNCs on the front panel.

Event Expansion: 12 Channel Event Expansions

Event Expansion: 12 Channel Event Expansions

The 2501-12 gives Spike2 twelve extra event inputs. These new events are sampled using the Spike2 digital marker channel. Each event input generates an 8 bit digital code and the codes are recorded on the digital marker channel. The unit can be installed as either a Micro1401 top box, or free standing. Free standing units can be used with other types of 1401.

Patch Clamp Electrophysiology

Signal for Windows incorporates many powerful features for whole cell and single channel experiments that make it ideal for electrophysiological recording. Familiar terms, and easily set up protocols for standard requirements enable the user to get started quickly using Signal and a CED Power 1401 data acquisition interface. Signal also incorporates an import function allowing you to analyze data from other recording systems.

Signal can easily all of the stimuli needed, including pre-recorded waveforms to perform voltage and current clamp experiments. In addition, Signal combined with the Power1401-3 data acquisition system are the easiest way to implement Dynamic Clamping in your research protocols.

Multiple sets of stimuli can be stored in one sampling configuration and selected manually or automatically sequenced. Signal can perform on-line measurement of seal and membrane resistance. Leak subtraction and I/V plots can be generated in real time or during offline analysis. Signal also provides mathematical functions to enable complicated curve fitting to waveform data and I/V plots.

Telegraph communication from the A-M Systems Model 2400 Patch Clamp Amplifier allows Signal to set properly scale collected data and send appropriate control voltages to the amplifier for complete control of the recording preparation

Signal can perform complicated curve fitting to your collected measured data, including Exponential, Gaussian, Polynomials, and Sigmoid curve. All data can be plotted and exported in tabular or graphical forms.

Dynamic Clamping

Signal and the Power1401-3 data acquisition system are the easiest way to implement Dynamic Clamping in your research program. Signal includes a fully integrated, easily configurable, high-performance dynamic clamping system. This advanced feature makes the technique readily available to researchers who do not have access to complex customized hardware and software, by providing a professionally designed, maintained and supported package that is usable by all, at a low cost.

In the dynamic clamp technique, a typically nonlinear feedback system delivers current to a cell to represent the actions of virtual ion channels, allowing ion channels or synapses to be simulated or the actions of existing channels to be cancelled.

When used in conjunction with the Power1401-3, Signal can be the bases of your dynamic clamp environment. Standard embedded hardware-based dynamic clamp systems offer feedback that is fast and precisely timed, but these systems are often expensive and sometimes inflexible. PC-based systems, on the other hand, allow more complex feedback, but real-time performance can be poor. The CED Signal dynamic clamp system gives you the best of both worlds. All real-time aspects of the system are executed by the Power1401’s fast embedded processor using pre-calculated lookup tables and optimized floating-point arithmetic, with the feedback calculations triggered by the ADC sampling for maximum stability. This software-based design is quick yet still provides great flexibility. The non-real-time aspects of the system are handled by the controlling PC to allow simplicity and ease of use.

The result: a dynamic clamp system integrated into the standard Signal data acquisition software that outperforms generally available dynamic clamp systems, at a reasonable cost.

System Requirements

Signal Dynamic clamping requires a CED Power1401-3 and a PC with Windows NT 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Intel Macintosh running Windows. Both 64-bit and 32-bit OS versions are supported. We recommend the computer has a minimum of 2GB of RAM.
