The AlphaLab SnR revolutionizes the way neuroscience research is performed in the laboratory, making it the most advanced data acquisition system currently available on the market. The AlphaLab SnR is a comprehensive, fully integrated, high-throughput system that allows users to record and stimulate from a virtually endless number of channels, with unprecedented ease and flexibility. The system brings microelectrode recording to a new level–from passive observation to active control and sophisticated interaction with neural circuits.
The system utilizes integrated, advanced stimulation sources to give users the power to deliver complex, unique stimulation patterns to all user-specified channels simultaneously. Researchers have absolute control to create an unlimited number of stimulation paradigms, as well as the ability to trigger and control stimulation based on an external analysis or behavioral system, digital inputs, threshold crossings, template matches, or other user-defined criteria. A high saturation point and advanced hardware components give users the ability to stimulate and record simultaneously on all channels without experiencing the typical stimulation switching blind spot. Additional tools, such as current return path controls, current monitors, and immediate stimulation logging, make the AlphaLab SnR the most advanced stimulating and recording system available today.
The AlphaLab SnR offers complete scalability and flexibility to meet each researcher’s specific needs. The system can be configured with 16 to 128 channels, and multiple systems can be cascaded to reach higher channel counts. A user-friendly, extremely customizable software interface allows researchers to command the entire experiment from a single workstation. Managing data from a large number of spike and LFP channels, as well as analog and digital inputs from video tracking, behavioral, or other external systems, has never been easier.
All data collected by the AlphaLab SnR can be cloned and streamed almost instantaneously to multiple computers, allowing users to create unique, closed-loop applications, or simply divide the workload among multiple lab members. Onboard user-programmable DSPs give users the tools to create closed-loop applications with realtime communication. The system’s advanced hardware and software components provide limitless opportunities for researchers involved in the most simple or complex of experiments.
