Is it possible to order custom Bio Amp cables?

The ADInstruments FE231 Bio Amp, FE232 Bio Amp, and Education series PowerLabs with built-in Bio Amps are shipped with a 3-lead and 5-lead Bio Amp cables.  The 5-lead Bio Amp cables use an Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) 6-pin medical connector. All of these units use an electrically isolated differential input AC amplifiers with common isolated ground connections, and have a BF rating (body-protected equipment) certification for human use, which only applies when they are used with the Bio Amp cable we supply.

Any modification of the Bio Amp cable or using a customized cable will void the BF rating certification!

For a customized connection we recommend to use one of the multiple lead wires ADInstruments offers that connect to the Bio Amp cable:

  • snap on
  • alligator clip
  • micro hook
  • shielded Ag-AgCl biopotential electrodes

or the MLA1515 Bio Cable (Animal, Dual Bio to 5 Alligator Clips, 1m); however, this cable is only intended for use with non-human subjects.
