How do I stimulate and record with an Electrophysiology Catheter?

Millar's Electrophysiology Catheters (for animal use only) are designed to be used within the ventricle or atrium to perform intracardiac electrophysiology studies. 

CONNECTION TO ADINSTRUMENTS BIO AMPS

The EPC-5A Catheter Interface cable allows the Electrophysiology Catheters to be connected to any ADInstruments Bio Amps. This interface cable comes supplied with a pack of ten 2mm pin adapters for connection to other amplifiers and stimulators. Each of the individual leads from the EPC-5A cable corresponds with one of the eight electrodes of the EP Catheter.

STIMULATION AND RECORDING USING THE STG3008-FA STIMULATOR/AMPLIFIER

The STG3008-FA Stimulator/Amplifier has been specifically designed to work with the Millar Electrophysiology Catheters and PowerLab data acquisition systems for electrophysiology studies. The PL3508B36 Cardiac Electrophysiology System includes the PowerLab, Stimulator/Amplifier, and cables required to perform an intracardiac electrophysiology study with a Millar Electrophysiology Catheter purchased separately. Stimulation protocols can be set up in the MC_Stimulus II program included with the STG3008-FA, and the PowerLab hardware can trigger the saved stimulus protocols from within the LabChart software. Using the hardware configuration shown below, each of the eight EP Catheter electrodes can be used for either stimulation or recording.
