Multi-Probe Micromanipulator (MPM) System



Maximize productivity and precision with automated probe positioning for acute in-vivo recording

Master multiple simultaneous recordings with the Multi-Probe Manipulator (MPM), the only micromanipulator designed specifically for positioning the newest silicon probes used in acute recordings.

Key Features:

  • Get creative with your experiments – Isolate neurons with one probe, record LFPs with a second probe, and stimulate with a third, all while recording mapped signals with the SmartBox Pro data acquisition system. The sky’s the limit!
  • Easily control 5 or more probes – Each probe micropositioner enables 3 axes of motion, all controlled by a single computer application.
  • Gross manual + Fine automated control – Four-axis arms enable quick setup, and three-axis automated micromanipulators adjust probe position with sub-micrometer precision.
  • Flexible device compatibility – Use any combination of probes, tetrodes, optical fibers, and waveguides to take your experiment to the next level.
