We are using WinTIDA software (commercialized by HEKA) which is very
suitable for acquisition, drug application (with an LP/SP8 superfusion
system) and stimulation. At present, we use it only for whole-cell
patch-clamp recordings.
We have two BioLogic amplifiers (RK-300 and RK-400). For mass storage, we
first use the server of our network and then transfer the files onto a
recordable CD.
Hoping it could help you,
