Why I chose Alpha Omega...

Alpha Omega is the world's best company for producing technologically sophisticated, versatile, and highly usable physiological recording equipment. The devices are highly robust and functional. In the clinical setting, this translates into excellent and reliable recordings which result in optimal localization and maximum benefit for the patient. In the research setting the same qualities allow the scientist to focus on the experiments and the resulting data and not on trouble-shooting the system. The company is instantly responsive and willing to modify their products to suit the needs of each individual user. They are without question the best in the field.

I have worked with and used Alpha Omega equipment since 2001. I have also used most every other microeletrode recording system available and have found that in a large 1600+ bed facility the Alpha Omega system is second to none. The equipment is highly robust and functionally easy to use and interpret with respect to both hardware and software components. The recordings are consistently reliable and results in optimal localization and maximum benefit for every patient in my busy practice. The service and support I receive from the company is superb and they constantly strive to make the system better with each upgrade taking into consideration our specific needs and recommendations. With no doubt I feel they are the leaders in the field.

Alpha Omega's equipment offers an ideal platform for neuronal recording and data acquisition in behaving animals. Based on over fourteen years experience in neurophysiology with Alpha Omega's system, I can clearly state the equipment successfully integrates both user-friendly functionality and robust reliability in data acquisition. Alpha Omega's staff have also provided very helpful assistance whenever it was needed.

I have used Alpha Omega equipment for 7 years, after having used equipment from a number of other vendors in the past. I have found the Alpha Omega equipment to be the most reliable, with by far the best noise reduction hardware and software available, as well as easy-to-use and powerful data analysis tools. Furthermore, the company's support staff is without peer.

I have been using the MicroGuide Pro for the last 5 years at Xuanwu Hospital, Capital Medical University. The MicroGuide is extremely reliable, safe, and user-friendly. My team and I are extremely satisfied with its performance in the operating room and I would highly recommend it to other surgeons and researchers.
Dr. Ping Zhuang,
Senior Researcher, Beijing Institute of Functional Surgery and Xuanwu Hospital
I have been a faithful customer of Alpha Omega for more than 10 years and have always been very satisfied by the robustness and reliability of their multiple electrode recording products, especially with respect to signal to noise ratio and filtering. The support provided by the company staff is first rate in terms of speed and availability and they are always ready to test new ideas for new products.
Dr. Thomas Boraud,
Director of Research at CNRS, Bordeaux, France
Alpha Omega has excellent neurophysiology equipment for both clinical and experimental applications. We have good experience with their equipment not only for routine procedures but also for innovative approaches requiring device development.
