The IDAC (Intelligent Data Acquisition Controller) systems are software controlled signal acquisition systems containing programmable amplifiers and filters, optimised for EAG, SSR, and GC-EAD/SSR recording.
Manipulators are necessary for making contact with small and delicate preparations. Different versions are available. From relatively simple systems to record from an insect antenna (EAG) to very delicate and high precision motorized systems to record from individual sensillae.
In applications as GC-EAD and GC-SSR recordings an antenna or Single Sensilum acts as a detector for active fractions in the effluent of a gas chromatograph (GC). This requires a suitable effluent splitter to be installed in the GC to apply part of the effluent to the insect preparation.
