Software Version: 
V 4.6.2
Release Date: 

MC_Rack is a data acquisition and analysis software. Combined with the hardware, for example the MC_Card, USB-MEA-Systems or USB-ME-Systems, it forms a complete data acquisition system for measuring extracellular activities of excitable cells, in vitro and in vivo. It has been developed especially for use with the data acquisition systems from Multi Channel Systems MCS GmbH, but the software is also ideally suited to work with other experimental setups.

To export data recorded with MC_Rack to other file formats please use the Multi Channel DataManager (HDF5, NEX, CED) or MC_DataTool (abf, txt, raw). This way you can use your prefered analyzing tools like Matlab, Python, NeuroExplorer, Spike2, etc.

Please update W2100-System Config together with MC_Rack!

Compatible with Windows® 7 / 8.x / 10 (32/64 Bit).

Note: The legacy PCI MC_Card data acquisition is no longer compatible with the latest Windows 10 (1903) update. Read more
