This presentation will highlight new innovations in technology within the new generation Bio-logic devices. These technologies are meant to help to improve efficiency and also add to the armamentarium of tests that can be performed with one device. Technology that will be discussed will be for ABR, ASSR and DPOAEs. ABR topics will cover data collection from both ears at the same time and spread spectrum technology. ASSR will highlight mixed rate ASSR and DPOAE will showcase the use of an FM signal, binaural OAE, pressurized OAEs and threshold estimation software to estimate audiometric thresholds using DPOAEs.
