The Axoclamp 900A Commander program runs on Windows XP/2000 operating systems.
Two USB 2.0 ports are required to connect the computer to the Axoclamp 900A: one for amplifier control and one for Monitor signal display on the computer screen for discontinuous modes. An additional USB port is required if the optional SoftPanel is used to control the amplifier.
Experimental Control and Data Acquisition*
Although the Axoclamp 900A is controlled by a software interface, it remains a conventional analog input/output amplifier. Thus, it requires a separate system for controlling stimulus protocols and recording the output, such as a digitizer and data acquisition software. The Digidata 1550 digitizer and pCLAMP 10 data acquisition and analysis software from Molecular Devices, work together to provide the most complete, integrated solution.
* Automatic telegraphing of the Axoclamp 900A amplifier requires pCLAMP 10 software and a Digidata 1550 or Digidata 1320 series digitizer.
Excellent Comprehensive Manual
We also provide a detailed User Guide that serves as a handbook of procedures for microelectrode users. Tutorials written by Axon Instruments staff and scientific consultants provide a useful guide to the operation of the instrument and are informative references for several electrophysiological techniques.
