Greater flexibility for your research

Booth number 720

Visit our research booth to learn how our technology is helping innovative research around the world - we’ll be demonstrating the latest tools and training we are developing for biomedical research and we’d love to hear what you are working on too. Come by anytime to chat to our team of application scientists and engineers or see below for specific application sessions you might find helpful.

What we have planned

Sunday April 23 - Animal Studies

Come past to learn more about how we can support a range of animal applications including cardiovascular studies, telemetry, autonomic research and behaviour/sleep and neuro. We will also be showcasing solutions from two of our strategic business partners - Data Sciences International (DSI) and Millar.

Monday April 24 - Human Studies

Today we will be showcasing our wide range of solutions for human research - including exercise physiology, cardiovascular studies, autonomic research, respiratory, sleep, speech pathology and psychophysiology.

Be sure to come past and view our exercise physiology demonstrations happening throughout today with paratriathlete Hailey Danz. In this demo we will show you the ease of integrating a wide range of data streams through our hardware solutions including Delsys Trigno wireless EMG and Equivital LifeMonitor and ancillaries. We will then display a range of real-time calculations in LabChart.

We will also be demonstrating how our Human NIBP system allows you to monitor blood pressure trends continuously and noninvasively by hooking a staff member up one hour at a time!

Tuesday April 25 - In Vitro Studies

On the last exhibition day, we will showcase our solutions for in vitro research, including isolated organ studies and electrophysiology. Be sure to stop past and check our Radnoti Working Heart System on display.
