It a must-have for all electrophysiologists.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: For converting analog signals to digital signals in electrophysiology

"Digidata 1550 is a very useful for all electrophysiologists. It has high signal to noise ratio which helps in acquiring very small amplitude electrical signals (in picoamperes) and the electrical signal traces look very clean. It also has a better sampling feature which helps to detect even very fast events which are important to study ion channel kinetics."

"I wish I had gotten the HumSilencer feature. Without it there doesn't seem to be much of an upgrade from 1440"

The Axon Digidata® System is the most widely used for a wide variety of electrophysiology recordings in laboratories worldwide.

The Digidata 1550 Digitizer further extends the precision and quality of the existing Axon Digitizer platform with enhanced performance in command voltage output control and sampling rate. It enables the recording of up to 8 cells simultaneously to study the function of neuronal networks in your neuroscience research. It also achieves a high-resolution data acquisition by capturing more data point in less time in your ion channel research.

Designed for fast results, the Digidata 1550 Digitizer comes with AxoScope software for Microsoft Windows OS and is ready to acquire data immediately after installation. Absolutely no programming is necessary.

The Digidata 1550 Digitizer features a maximum sampling rate of 500 kHz per channel, with an outstanding total data throughput rate of 4 mega-samples per second. This enables you to capture even the fastest signals in the biorelevant frequency range. Both the inherent digitizer noise and channel crosstalk noise are rated at less than ±1 mV average p-p at 10 kHz, within a ±10 V input range, making the Digidata 1550 System one of the quietest digitizers on the market.

Axon Digidata® 1550 System Features:

  • 8 analog input channels to digitize acquired signals up to 500 kHz independently
  • 8 analog output channels to send command voltage output independently
  • 8 digital out channels to control the periphery equipment used in sophisticated experiments
  • Independent analog-to-digital converters for each input channel ensure low crosstalk levels and high data acquisition rates.
  • USB 2.0 connection allows operation on virtually any current PC computer running Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit) Operating System, including laptops.
  • 16-bit resolution for state-of-the-art signal-to-noise ratio
  • All signal connectors on the front panel for ease of access and maintenance of the electrophysiology set-up
  • Rack-mount case for tidy installation of all components in the electrophysiology set-up
  • User guide written by scientific consultants, with the assistance of Axon Instruments staff, for straightforward start-up and as an in-depth reference.
