HEKA EPC800 Patch Clamp amplifierHEKA EPC800


For any researcher who desires manual user control through knobs and dials, while at the same time, longs for some degree of computer communication and automatic control, HEKA is excited to release the EPC 800 USB. This amplifier is truly a unique hybrid patch-clamp amplifier with its design and feature-set primarily based upon the manually controlled EPC 8. The EPC 800 USB can be controlled with any data acquisition interface and can be supported, not only by HEKA software, but also with third-party data acquisition programs.

Operating Modes of the EPC 800 USB

The EPC 800 USB can be operated in three modes: Telegraphing Local, Local and Remote. The decision of which mode to use not only depends upon user preference of whether or not to have the functionality to turn knobs and switches, but also upon what data acquisition software and interface the EPC-800 USB is used with.
