Testimonials

Dependable

“The ADInstruments gear performed superbly! In our previous experience, and that of others, the actual measurements of end tidal gases and ventilation have been near on impossible to make above 4000 m. We spent almost 2 weeks at 5050 m and basically turned the ADInstruments equipment on when we arrived and it ran almost continuously for the duration of the experiments, which were done during sleep in day and night time.”

Dr. Ainslie

Cost-effective connectivity

“Once you have a PowerLab system, it is relatively inexpensive to add extra functionality. For example, when our educators wanted more ECG machines for 12 lead ECG experiments we reviewed our options. We could get new ECG machines at around $6000 each or ECG pods with switch boxes for use with PowerLab systems for well under $1000 each. Choosing the single channel Bio Amp to supplement our existing machines saved the school many thousands of dollars.”

Ms Kellie Ridges
Operations Manager at Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute, University of Wollongong.

Robust & portable

“The size of the PowerLab was perfect as it fitted into my backpack! It was also one of the few pieces of equipment which worked well with the generator at basecamp. Many other pieces of equipment demanded too much power, short-circuiting the generators”
