According to Graham Milliken, CEO of ADInstruments "This new relationship with Zephyr™ assists us in our mission to make the goals of today's researchers and educators easier to achieve. The wireless nature of the BioHarness™, with its comprehensive data streams, and the comfort offered by the smartfabric strap makes the device an excellent addition to our LabChart data acquisition software. The two systems combined will help us remain the system of choice for thousands of researchers and educators worldwide."
"ADInstruments has shown themselves to be one of the world-leaders in the field of data acquisition and analysis for research and education," says Brian Russell, CEO of Zephyr™.
