Achieving excellence through tailor-made training.

Korean electrophysiology workshop 2017

Alongside KOMA Biotech, Blackrock Microsystems hosted its first South Korean Electrophysiology Workshop in Seoul, Korea on June 28, 2017.

The content of the workshop focused on product training. Participants were shown features of products in detail, learning to do things they had not known was possible with our equipment. The workshop featured lessons on plug-n-play electrophysiology systems, integrated data flow, clinical grade equipment, and how to best utilize our 24/7 technical support.

Surgery training 2017

In conjunction with the Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone, Blackrock Microsystems organized its 3rd European surgical training in Marseille, France, from April 24 – 26, 2017.

The participants had the opportunity to learn all about implanting the Utah Array and recording high-quality spikes and local field potentials from neural tissue. The 3-day workshop started with a theoretical overview of surgical techniques and procedures. In the afternoon, Dr. Nicho Hatsopoulos from the University of Chicago performed a demo surgery.

On the second day, participants applied their theoretical knowledge in a 5 hour practice surgery session. At the ending of the day, participants learned to record data from the just-implanted Utah Arrays.

The 3rd workshop day featured a visit to the Riehle/Brochier lab, Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone.

European hands-on electrophysiology training 2017

From February 1-2, 2017, Blackrock Microsystems organized its first hands-on training in Europe. The 2-day workshop took place in Blackrock’s European headquarters in Hannover, Germany.

This workshop was all about getting the most out of your electrophysiology research equipment. Collaborating in small groups of four or three, the participants learned all about:

  • Basic and advanced operation of the Cerebus, Neuroport and CerePlex Direct data acquisition hardware and software
  • Noise troubleshooting
  • Basic and advanced operation of the CereStim electrical stimulator
  • Closed-loop programming in Matlab and C/C++, real-time applications
  • Review and demonstration of new Blackrock products including the
    • Cereplex W wireless headstage system
    • Cereplex Mu ultra-small headstage with 6D motion sensor
  • Spike sorting using the BOSS software package
  • Online and offline data analysis

North American hands-on electrophysiology training 2017

Blackrock Microsystems hosted its 3rd annual hands-on electrophysiology workshop in Salt Lake City, Utah between January 18-20.

On the first day of the workshop, participants warmed up with sessions overseeing introduction to systems, software, and electrodes. Central, CereStim & Stim Manager, and NPMK were among some of the software explored on the first day of training. In-between sessions, participants received dedicated one-on-one time where they addressed their own questions to Blackrock employees.

The second day of the workshop touched on noise troubleshooting and tools for electrophysiology. Mostly, the day was spent on one-on-one time with participants and hands-on training. Attendees gained valuable information on how to work with their systems. At the end, they were able to work with and understand their research tools thoroughly, which proves vital for application.
