Flexible Mono-coil Patch Cable Wrap for Optogenetics
October 26, 2015

DALLAS, TX — (October 26, 2015) – Plexon Inc, the leader in advanced hardware and software solutions for neuroscience and behavioral research, launches the NEW extra flexible, stainless steel Mono-coil Patch Cable Wrap (Mono-coil Wrap) for optogenetics research involving freely behaving animals. The Mono-coil Wrap is the latest product line expansion of Plexon’s PlexBright® Optogenetic Stimulation System.

Prior to this launch, Plexon offered two types of optical patch cables supporting optogenetic experiments with freely behaving animals: the standard very flexible 900μm cable ideal for use with mice, and a reinforced cable with a stainless steel armored jacketing ideal for use with aggressive rats. The NEW Mono-coil Wrap combines the best of both worlds to yield an extra flexible, reinforced cable. Researchers will quickly notice and appreciate that it:

  • Is far more flexible that the armored jacketing,
  • Offers far more protection than the standard, unjacketed cable, and
  • Enhances commutator operation over a cable without a wrap.

The NEW Mono-coil Wrap is available for both PlexBright Optical Patch Cables used with Compact LED Modules (used with commutators) and Table-top LED Modules. It can also be applied to optical patch cables having an LC Ferrule tip (likely for a mouse) or an FC Ferrule tip (likely for rats and larger animals). The Mono-coil Wrapped cables are offered in the standard optical patch cable sizes of 0.5m, 1.0m and 1.5m, and it can be manufactured to a custom length.
