Highly integrated flexibility for neural recording

CerePlex™ E is the next-generation noise-free link between the Utah Array™ and the Cerebus™ or CerePlex™ Direct data acquisition systems. Smaller and more powerful than ever, this headstage supports high-fidelity transmission and recording of extracellular spikes and local field potentials from up to 128 microelectrodes.

CerePlex E digitizes analog neural signals directly at the recording site, dramatically reducing noise during signal transmission. An on-board multiplexer minimizes wire count, enabling a lighter, smaller and more streamlined connection to the data acquisition system.

An integrated impedance measurement function facilitates in-vivo interrogation of individual electrodes. CerePlex E’s built-in amplifier utilizes ultra-wideband filters for greater stability to record even the slowest neural oscillations down to 0.05 Hz.

These advanced features all are packed into this thumb-sized device that is compatible with the CerePort™ array, which is suited for implantation in non-human primates, felines and rats (with alternative connector).
