The Jackson Laboratory has been an early adopter of the PowerLab data
acquisition system, utilizing the system in both its own research capacity
and complementing the agenda of several of its courses and workshops,
including the workshop on Comprehensive Approaches to the in vivo
Assessment of Cardiovascular Function in Mice (to be held in June) and
Phenotyping Mouse Models of Human Lung Disease (to be held in September).
Both courses will be held at The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine.
Computers connected to the PowerLab data recording system, developed by
ADInstruments, will be the primary tool for acquiring biological signals
during the mentioned intensive multi-day training programs held at The
The long term goal of this partnership is the realization of multiple
applications of ADInstrument's innovative technologies in leveraging
