  • Wireless receivers for long-term EEG/neural signals from rats, mice, or pups
  • Use with multi-channel EEG, ECG, or EMG implantable transmitters
  • Just move the receiver tray to record from multiple home cages

Receiver tray with Faraday cage to collect data from a mouse housed in an industry standard home cage. Use with implantable sensor* (two included and order more separately). To record, simply place the animal’s cage on top of the receiver tray with the implanted animal inside of the cage. Neural data from the sensor is telemetered to the receiving tray and then sent to the data acquisition system.

The receiver tray has BNC connections that easily connect to a BIOPAC data acquisition system or third-party devices capable of accepting signals within the ±5 V range; each channel requires one output cable. For BIOPAC systems, use CBL123 for MP160/HLT, CBL102 for MP150/UIM, or  SS9LA+CBL125 for MP36 or MP36R.

When used with an MP Research System, use the power of AcqKnowledge software’s automation and scoring tools to identify seizures, predefine and control recording protocols, or set triggers based on external events (dosing, light changes, etc.). After recording, use automated analysis routines to quickly score multiple channels of EEG, ECG, or EMG data simultaneously. Derive frequency bands, complete a Frequency analysis, look at Alpha RMS, etc., all with guided automated routines.

Receiver options are available to optimize signal recording. Use the EPOCH Wizard to select or confirm Receiver/Transmitter compatibility and check additional system components.

System Extensions

Add SleepSign for Animals (SSA100W) for complete sleep data analysis.

Use Camera Systems (CAMSYS4 or CAMSYS8) to monitor and record protocols and animal behavior. Recorded video will be time synchronized to the physiological signals in AcqKnowledge for easy investigation of key areas of interest.
