Acquisition and analysis of signals produced by our optical systems is carried out using the Bio-Kine32 software. Bio-Kine32 has been designed to complement our SFM instruments and drive the Bio-Logic spectrometers in the addition to our mixing devices.
Bio-Kine32 operates under the latest version of Windows environment (Xp, Vista, Win7-32, Win7-64, Win 8, Win 10). It uses an A/D board from National Instruments, probably the best industrial standard in data acquisition systems.
The Bio-Kine32 software is designed to control the following optical systems:
• MOS-500 spectropolarimeter
• MOS-450/AF & /AF-CD
• MOS-DA diode array
• Jasco CD spectrometers
• Accessories such as:
* Peltier cells
* multi cell peltier
* Acquisition of any other analog signal (-10/+10V)
It also provides a direct bridge to the Stopped-Flow driver software and accessories.
The Bio-Kine32 software can control these instruments and acquire data for transient kinetics, spectral scans, act as a virtual chart recorder and control external devices.
The use of similar controls for all modes makes Bio-Kine32 easy to use and eliminates the hassles of learning multiple programs for different types of experiments.
The Transient Recorder is similar to a digital oscilloscope.
Up four data channels of 16000 points each can be acquired and displayed simultaneously. Sampling rates from 10 µs/point (20kHz) to 100 s/point (0.1 Hz) can be used. Both linear and logarithmic sampling is available through the use of up to three times bases. Data can be acquired in two different spectroscopic modes simultaneously (Volt, Transmittance, Absorbance, CD or Anisotropy).
The Scanning Spectrometer is used to control one or two monochromators to perform spectral scans.
Bio-Kine32 is capable of making spectral acquisitions in the same spectroscopic modes that are available for transient kinetics. In conjunction with the appropriate spectrometer system, Bio-Kine32 can act as a full feature absorbance, fluorescence or CD spectrometer.
the global mode allow a 3 D spectral reconstruction.
This mode is available only with motorized monochromators spectrometer such as MOS-200/M or MOS-500.
A kinetic is performed at different wavelength, and 3 D graph is computed: signals vs time vs wavelength.
