Multiwell-Screen Software: Easy to use, specialized for screenings
The last component of the system is the computer with the included software package Multiwell-Screen. The software is designed specifically for the needs of screening experiments with the Multiwell-MEA-System. With only a few mouse clicks, you can set-up your experiment, including information on applied drugs and wash-in phases. The software then guides you through your experiment and calculates dose-response curves automatically online, while you can select between different parameters (field potential duration, peak-to-peak amplitude, RR interval, spike count etc). You can display your data in real-time and filter it (high-pass, low-pass, Butterworth, Notch etc.). Moreover, you can detect spikes and also record digital events.
Within the same software, you can design the stimulation patterns and decide when you want to stimulate.
The separate analysis software (Multiwell Analyzer), which is also included in the system, provides further tools for detailed offline analysis.
Both tools are designed for repeated screening experiments, so saving your settings and experimental layout is quick and easy.
As a policy at Multi Channel Systems, updates of the Multiwell Screen software package will be available online and free of charge, so you are always up-to-date with recent developments.
