the ISX-3mini

Demanding measurements but no room for large and bulky lab equipment? Impedance Spectroscopy out in the field? With the ISX-3mini Sciospec offers a fully equipped impedance analyzer fitting in the palm of your hand.

In standard configuration the ISX-3mini is equipped with Sciospec’s IF frontend. Within the measurement range from 100 mHz to 10 MHz (extendable to 40 or 100 MHz) it covers a dynamic range of 300dB (mOhm…TOhm) with a base precision of 0.01%. The two multiplexed 4-electrode MCX measurement ports greatly simplify comparative measurements of two sensors or devices under test.

Impedance measurement of a forearm with the Sciospec Medical Research ISX-3 impedance analyzer

  The Medical Research ISX-3 impedance analyzer is intended to facilitate the use of impedance spectroscopy in medical research applications. To that end it includes measures for enhanced electrical safety including medical grade isolation enabling a safe operation of the instrument in medical research settings. This very simple experiment shows the impedance change in the forearm due to a movement of the hand. The direct response in impedance is visible in the live-plotter of the data (absolute impedance and phase). Setup: Medical Research ISX-3 with a 32-channel multiplexer only 4 channels were used 4-point measurement Adhesive electrodes (ECG-electrodes) Ambu Bluesensor

Measuring the viscosity of glycerin solutions in very small samples using Sciospec ISX-3 Impedance Analyzer

Measuring the viscosity of very small sample volumes is of high interest in many fields especially in miniaturized and micro-fluidic systems. This application note describes an approach using the change of the impedance spectrum of a Thickness Shear Mode Resonator in combination with a sophisticated fitting algorithm. The simple setup of the measuring system enables easy integration in existing micro-fluidic settings with almost no adaption. As validation of the Sciospec ISX-3 a comparison to theoretical values and to a commercially available vector network analyzer on the same setup is provided. The measurement of the viscosity is very well known for

Online monitoring of polymer coating process using Sciospec ISX-3 Impedance Analyzer

Online monitoring of deposition or coating processes is highly relevant in a variety of fields including biocompatible coatings for medical implants. As of now mostly “simple” resonance tracking of quartz crystal microbalances is used for these purposes. The joint research project by AG Mayr, Leibniz Institute of Surface Modification Leipzig1 and Sciospec was aiming for more specific insights into the process itself. Especially nano-structural formation and adhesion parameters are of high interest. This application note describes the first step of data acquisition and parameter estimation.     Setup A high vacuum chamber, with a base pressure of 10^(-7) mbar, was

CHARACTERIZATION OF THE ENCAPSULATION PROCESS OF DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION ELECTRODES USING IMPEDANCE SPECTROSCOPY IN A RODENT MODEL

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is effective for the treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), especially in advanced stages which are refractory to conventional therapy. Despite of the regular use in clinical therapy, rodent models for basic research into DBS are not routinely available. The main reason is the geometry difference from rodents to humans, imposing larger problems in the transfer of the stimulation conditions than from primates to humans. For rodents, the development of miniaturized mobile stimulators and stimulation parameters, as well as improved electrode materials and geometry are desirable. The impedance of custom made, cylindrical (contact diameter 200

ExtensionPort System

For flexible extension of its application possibilities application-specific frontends and adapters can be connected through the ExtensionPort system. Interface and specifications for the ExtensionPort are fully user accessible dramatically simplifying customers’ developments for and with the ISX-3mini. The connector carries measurement signals for 2,3 and 4-electrode configuration, supply rails and digital IOs, which can optionally be configured as serial interfaces (I2C, UART).
