Wireless Optogenetics Wireless Electrophysiology
Wireless Optogenetics - no more tethers!
Free your animals - no more cumbersome tethers and commutators - facilitate free, natural behaviour spanning locomotion, social interaction, sleep, epilepsy, operant conditioning and so on. Spikes, LFP and EEG - record up to 128 channels @ 50 kHz per channel; suitable for mice upwards. Silicon neural probe compatible  -  plug ‘n’ play with our world- leading silicon neural probes - watch this video of live spike data via wireless recording. Wireless Powering - on-board battery with ~5 hours operation - longer battery life available or wireless inductive power for infinite battery life. Ideal for long-duration, unsupervised experiments and high-throughput. Noise resistant - minimal sensitivity to 50 / 60 Hz mains noise (no shielding required); no tether artefacts. Multiple systems in parallel - increased throughput with 3 non- overlapping transmit frequencies in the same environment; > 3 systems possible with radio shielding. Combo - Stim + Record - easily combined with wireless optogenetics and wireless electrical stimulation headstages. Proven technology - read the full publication here.

Free your animals - no more cumbersome tethers and

commutators - facilitate free, natural behaviour with the latest in

wireless optogenetics.

Implantable micro-LEDs - real-time, independent timing and brightness control offering up to 33 mW @ 465 nm (<0.5 C for full power); orthogonal light emission enabling depth-specific illumination. Uni- or bilateral implants - 2 micro-LEDs or 2 groups of LEDs can be run in parallel to achieve to larger tissue volume activation. Batch-process your animals - simultaneously operate up to 16 independent headstages for high throughput experiments at lower cost-point than lasers / fibres / optical rotary joints etc. Minimal set-up - no fiddly focussing optics required and no stiff fibre patch-cords and fibre-optical commutators so reduces the requirement for supervision of animals during experiments - an inefficient use of labour! Wireless Powering - on-board battery with ~5 hours operation - longer battery life available or wireless inductive power for infinite battery life. Ideal for long-duration, unsupervised experiments and high-throughput. Combo Stim + Record - easily combined with wireless recording headstages for complete opto-electrophysiology experiments.

Advanced Electrophysiology Systems
Both you and your animals will benefit from wireless optogenetics, allowing you to escape the bottleneck of 1 laser : 1 animal by running up to 16 animals simultaneously, free from stiff fibre optic patch cords and expensive rotary joints requiring supervision during experiments. Designed to work with implantable micro-LEDs which emit light side-ways, c.f. traditional straight-down emission for fibres, you’ll also be able to stimulate at different tissue depths too, either for multiple targets or as an internal ‘off- target’ control. You can also readily combine wireless optogenetics with wireless electrophysiology and our silicon neural probes are the only probes on the market purpose-engineered to suppress photoelectric artefacts, making them the ideal partnering tool to give you an all-in-one wireless solution for high-channel count electrophysiology and optogenetics.
