In Vitro Physiologic Monitoring
Our Multi Channel Systems, HEKA, and Warner teams have solutions that enable you to monitor changes in electrical activity from discrete neurons or cardiomyocytes. Changes in population or single unit activity can reveal new information about disease states and new techniques such as optogenetics can modulate activity in real time. Harvard Bioscience offers a complete product portfolio of instruments for patch clamp electrophysiology, extracellular recording, and automated oocyte recordings that can be tailored to an investigator’s specific needs. More importantly, we offer the technical expertise to assist you at all stages of scientific discovery.
In Vivo Physiologic Monitoring
Our DSI and Multi Channel Systems teams offer solutions that allow you to observe changes in neuronal activity that can be directly linked to behavior or a particular disease state to better understand pathophysiological mechanisms in conscious, freely moving or tethered laboratory animals. Harvard Bioscience offers complete solutions from wireless fully implantable EEG telemetry for the recording of population events, to digital head stage amplifiers and tethered approaches with high sampling rates for measuring single unit recordings. Enhanced features include electrical and optical stimulation of individual neurons and neuronal networks, and synchronized video monitoring and tracking to correlate activity with physiological recordings. Furthermore, our team of application specialists can work with you to determine the best solution for your research objectives.
Our Coulbourn Instruments and Panlab teams are leading manufacturers of high-quality products for animal behavioral testing. Representing over 40 years of experience, our brands offer the most comprehensive and trusted line of behavioral research tools. Solutions are designed with user-friendliness and flexibility in mind, promoting success in both standard and advanced experimental design.
