EDR 3: Elements Data Reader V3

The EDR software interface enables an easy control of all the eONE and multichannel amplifiers, showing and saving data in real time. Input current ranges, bandwidth, voltage stimulus and electrode offset compensation can all be easily selected and modified. Data can be stored in commonly used formats like .dat or .abf. Resistance, Capacitance and rms noise can be continuously monitored. EDR is currently available for Windows and OS X and it is always included in the instrument price.

On the main window you can find:

  • the Controls tab, to set the current range (the gain), the sampling rate, the digital filters;
  • the Voltage Protocols tab, to apply the required voltage stimulus using a set of different parametric voltage protocols, like pulses and ramps of various duration and amplitude;
  • the Current display window, which shows the actual current measured;
  • the Voltage display window, which shows the voltage stimulus applied;
  • the Analysis tab, featuring a set of analysis on the data like R and C estimation, rms noise measure, current histograms, event detection, FFT and I/V graph (some on these functions are available only under license);
  • Labbook tab, to write notes and experimental data linked to the current traces (this function is available only under license);

A set of shortcuts is available for fast control via keyboard:

Online analysis module

The online analysis module enhances the EDR 3 features. A variety of analysis can be done on live experiments, such as current histograms, Dwell and inter-event time histograms, I/V graph, FFT. The analysis module is an optional plug-in for the EDR3 software. You can see how these analysis work in the following video.

Current Histogram

Event detection – Dwell time

I/V graph

FFT - Fast Fourier Transform
