Computer and software
The last component of the system is the computer with the included software package MC_Rack. With daily lab work in mind, the program is set up like an instrument rack on a workbench, allowing you to combine virtual instruments (e.g. oscilloscope, filter, event detector, spike sorter, sound output, or signal-triggered TTL pulse) in any way you want. MC_Rack has been used many years in laboratories around the world and has proven to be a powerful, flexible and reliable software.
MC_Rack can be used for online and offline analysis of your data. You can also export the data and analyze the data with Neuroexplorer, Matlab or your custom program.
For standardized experiments, Multi Channel Systems offers two software packages available for purchase: Cardio2D for analysis of cardiac cells, tissues, and whole organs and the LTP-Director for standardized LTP experiments in hippocampal slices.
As a policy at Multi Channel Systems, updates of all software packages are available online and free of charge, so you are always up-to-date with recent developments.
