Making Physiology Happen


AS-TA Add-On Animal Physiology Transducer Set

The AS-TA Add-On Transducer Set adapts the HK-TA and HK-TA256NI kits for use in traditional animal physiology experiments. This set includes all the equipment and courseware needed to convert an HK-TA (human) kit into an AHK-TA (combination animal/human) kit. With these additional transducers, 11 animal experiments with 47 exercises can be conducted. These include studies of action potentials, muscles, synapses, metabolism, fluid balance, and membrane potentials.

These Lab Exercises can be performed with the AS-TA addon. For additional exercises please visit the courseware page
