Light Stimulating Device

  • Model: LSD-1

Description

Optogenetics is becoming an increasingly important research method in the neuroscience community.ALA Scientific’s Light Stimulation Device (LSD-1) can be incorporated into existing electrophysiology setups where light sensitive ion channels are being studied. Optical stimulation over standard electrical stimulation techniques affords researchers the advantage of non-invasively stimulating targeting areas.

Key features of the LSD-1 include:

    • LED intensity control via manual knob or via analog signal for computer control

 

    • Easily changeable LED’s for different wavelength use

 

    • Low-noise electronics for integration into electrophysiology setups

 

  • Field illumination when light guide connected to scope optics
