FREE MOVING SET UP

HIGH CHANNEL COUNT RECORDING FROM FREELY MOVING ANIMALS

This setup supports tethered recording and stimulation from freely moving animals.

Alpha Omega’s products are lightweight and controllable to suit all rodent sizes.

In addition, the AlphaComm-I commutator was designed with the vision to allow full personal adaptation to the animals’ movement and size, therefore producing noise-free high-quality signals.

Our setup supports researches using electric or optogentic stimulation, drug delivery systems, long recording sessions with easy adjustability for the arena size, close loop abilities, video tracking software sycronization and more.

You can count on our team to support your project from conceptualization all the way through to data analysis and interpretation. The bottom line is, we are here to help you publish faster by ensuring that you gather accurate data.

Key Features:

  • Up to 128 channel configurations
  • Digitized Headstages: Ultra-small and lightweight headstage suitable for all types of setups and subjects
  • High-resolution commutator: Suitable for small animals with the ability to control speed and sensitivity
  • Ability to record for long experimental sessions
  • Integrated Recording and Stimulation in one system
  • Online Recording and Stimulation algorithm. An adaptive algorithm for fast recovery from stimulation artifact, the artifact deducted during stimulation enables online spike segmentation and sorting
  • Simultaneous data streaming of Raw, Spike & LFP signals
  • Real-time closed loop: DSP programming allowing fast response for closed-loop (<1ms)
  • Powerful DSPs: State-of-the-art Octa-core DSPs SDK tool. Two-way communication using MATLAB or C++ for streaming all data and controlling system functionality
  • Optogenetics: Built-in GUI for controlling various optogenetics systems
