CellWorks©



The Turnkey Software Solution for Experimental Control and Data Acquisition

Version 6.2 is compatible to Windows 7 (32bit & 64bit)

CellWorks© is a modular program especially developed for executing complex electro-physiological and pharmacological investigations and other laboratory experiments on living cells under computer control. The software package not only performs data recordings, but is designed for complete control of the entire experimental setup allowing the automated execution of experimental procedures.

Outstanding features include
- Powerful solution and drug application management, handles lists of solutions
- Operated through an icon based, graphical, user friendly platform with multi user capability
- Available for PCs with WINDOWS 95 / 98, Windows NT 4.0 / 2000 / XP
- Can be used on notebooks with PCMCIA interface cards from National Instruments
- Powerful editors and configuration routines make the design of turnkey solutions for different experimental situations easy
- Applications include stimulation, perfusion, pump control, presetting and direct control of the recording amplifier, communication with photometric recording devices, data acquisition and storage to hard disk
- Data can be exported to many programs for data analysis, e.g. IGOR Pro, pCLAMP, Sigma Plot, Origin, Synaptosoft's Mini Analysis or Dempster's Strathclyde Electrophysiology Software
- Multi-functional interface boards from National Instruments, serial ports, the INT-20X ot INT-20X-USB breakout box and the VD-24 universal valve controller from npi provide the link to your experimental setup
- Can be adapted to a virtually infinite number of users and experimental environments
- CellWorks E or M: 16 analog input channels (12 bit or 16 bit), range ±10 V) OUTPUTS: 2 analog output channels (12 bit or 16 bit), up to 96 TTL lines, (with additional DIO boards), 8 power outputs (5 V - 24 V / 0.5 A) with breakout box for perfusion valve control.

The downloadable CellWorks© 6.2.2 Demo version is fully functional, but has no hardware interface and is not protected by a dongle. The hardware is simulated within CellWorks Demo. This allows not only a realistic look into the program, but also evaluation of data recorded with CellWorks full version.
