- Wireless recording: 5-32 channels in mice, 5-128 channels in rats and larger species
- No tether artifacts
- No need for cable commutators
- Minimal sensitivity to 50/60 Hz mains noise
- Multiple wireless systems in parallel with one SnR system (up to 128 channels)
- User-friendly software
Benefits and Advantages
- Spike-bandwidth on every channel up to 128 channels
- Non-stop recording for long duration unsupervised experiments and high-throughput
- Absence of signal contamination and lack of behavioral distraction due to tether movement
- Fast setup time and save costs on shielding and noise troubleshooting
- Up to 3 wireless recording systems simultaneously in open field
- The SnR software allows the researcher to command the entire experiment. Continuous spike, segmented spike, and local field potential channels are displayed on-screen.
- Easily synchronize behavioral or video tracking systems.
- Customizable workspace. The software is designed to give the user complete control over what is viewed on screen. Modify and save workspace configurations to match the needs of each experiment.
- Open file format. Files are easily converted to other file formats, including text, Matlab, Plexon, CED, and wavefile for post-experiment analysis.
- Choose to save or not to save any of the following signals for each channel: continuous spike, continuous LFP, segmented spike waveforms, analog inputs, and digital inputs. Or save trials based on a digital trigger to ensure only the target data is saved.
- Audio options. Researchers can listen to the audio of one continuous analog channel, either during acquisition or while replaying recorded data.
- Compatible with most arrays. The wireless headstage connects with a standard omnetics connector, making it simple to connect to most arrays on the market. Additionally, Alpha Omega can manufacture custom microelectrode and microwire arrays to meet the needs of almost any experiment.
