Charting a New Course for Life Science Data Acquisition: LabChart 6 and LabChart Reader for Windows and Mac

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - March 6, 2008) - ADInstruments has released LabChart 6, a new generation of software for their PowerLab data acquisition systems. The release is part of the company's 20th Anniversary celebrations, and is enhanced by the simultaneous release of the LabChart Reader application. LabChart Reader enables viewing and limited analysis of LabChart data files, and is available as a free download from the ADInstruments website.

LabChart 6 is the latest version of the market-leading Chart software for PowerLab systems. The new software can acquire up to 16 channels of raw data, and display up to 32 channels of raw and calculated data, twice as many as any previous version of Chart. Other features include variable sampling speeds for each channel, automated recording with editable macros, and support for specialized acquisition and analysis using optional LabChart Extensions and Modules.

LabChart Reader is ADInstruments' first application program available as a free download. The program allows users to open LabChart or Chart data files, use select analysis features and print. It will enable life science researchers, educators, students and publishers to share data and collaborate across institutional and geographical boundaries.

LabChart 6 and LabChart Reader are available for Windows XP (SP2) and Vista and Mac OS X (10.4 or later) operating systems. LabChart 6 and LabChart Reader for Mac are ADInstruments' first Universal Binary software applications, and offer native performance on both Power PC and Intel Mac computers.
