The Acquisition and Analysis Software

The LASA Software: your data in real time, remotely and without setup

Designed by Etisense, our software is the cornerstone of the solution. It will help you at every stage of the process of acquiring, visualizing, organizing, analyzing your data and store them for later exportation. It records physiological signals from the sensors, includes smart automatic algorithms to pre-detect cardiac and respiratory cycles, and calculates physiological parameters such as cardiac or respiratory rates.

Easy and rapid to set up

Thanks to the Plug&Play system, there is no installation needed on a computer, the software is executed from the acquisition sever and the connection is made from a web browser using an ethernet cable

Continuous or scheduled mode

Record your data continuously or, to avoid staying at your lab to start and stop measurement for several hours, program an automatic recording at the specific time of your choice

GLP compliant

Our optionnal audit trail module implements an audit trail for the system and the studies. It is required to qualify the system in GLP environment and is compliant with GLP/ 21 CFR Part 11 requirements

Database driven data analysis and navigation

Calculate averages and error on binning times, realign data to markers, select and exclude data for analysis, inspect data with navigation between parameters and corresponding signals

Acquisition software main features

Remote visualization of the acquisitions

You have the choice to manage or view the acquisitions remotely, from your office for example. You don’t necessarily need to be in the same room than your animals. Just connect your PC to the local network, launch your web browser, connect to the acquisition server address and enjoy a modern and user-friendly software.

Emitters remote control and battery gauge

The software controls the Start & Stop of the emitters by Bluetooth and displays the battery gauge in real time. Low battery level raises an alert at recording starts.

Up to 8 animals simultaneously

With our software, you can easily monitor up to 8 animals simultaneously with a single software interface managing all the hardware transparently for you.

Our LASA Start Software is conceived to monitor up to 4 animals in parallel and our LASA Advanced Software up to 8. 

Alerts if values are out of threshold

It allows you to control animal’s welfare during long protocols and takes preventive or care action. Assess eventual physiological stress or events occuring during manipulation. 

Data management and traceability

  • Create or import protocols, groups and subjects

You can pre-configure in advance your experimental groups (control, treated…) and subjects and your experimental plan to save time in the lab. The software also let you export and Reimport templates for standard designs.

  • Automatic data organization

Stay focus on the animal instead of naming files and configuring stuffs. When you start an acquisition, just select the animal and your setup. The data recorded will be automatically organized and easily found during analysis phase.  

  • Traceability

All metadata previously entered (weight, animal id, etc…) and the hardware used for acquisition are bound to the recordings. They are included in exported files to help enforcing traceability.

Data processing

  • Automatic respiratory and cardiac cycles detection

The software provides automatic algorithms to detect cardiac and respiratory cycles. Detected cycles are shown on the signals and can be exported. Although we provide standards configuration for the algorithms designed to work in most situation algorithms’ parameters can be globally or individually tuned if required.

  • Physiological parameters calculation and review

Physiological parameters such as heart rate are calculated for each cycle detected and displayed in the interface. Easy inspection of raw signals and cycles from averaged parameters.

  • Queued or parallel embedded data processing and analysis

All the processing tasks can be queued to let the user do other things during calculation times. Our ADVANCED system can process multiple recordings at the same time (It takes less than 15min to handle 100h). The software let you keep different analysis for the same recording and place tags to differentiate them (i.e reviewed, approved or 30s, 1h binning). Data with a label can then easily be exported in your usual statistics or graphing software.

Open and evolutive

  • Raw and calculated data exportation in non-proprietary format

Raw and calculated data are stored in non-proprietary format and remain available at any time. They can be exported in various formats: xls, csv, hdff5 or wav for further analysis, backup or archiving. Export can be configured to include: physiological and/or detected cycles and calculated parameters. 

  • CSV and Spreadsheet export of analysis

The spreadsheets exported by the software have been designed to facilitate analysis with filtering data, pivot tables averaging. They let you easily customize statistics and analysis.

  • Updates and scalability

Connect the system to internet and get software updates from a click (subscription required). As long as new functionalities become available, you may be willing to upgrade your system. Our proprietary software is built to facilitate these upgrades installation, remotely.
