Congratulations to the Workshop Registration Raffle Winners
Week of: April 27, 2015
Thank you to the more than 100 entrants that participated in Plexon’s Neuroscience 2014 raffle for two FREE registrations to the very popular 2015 Annual Neurophysiology and Behavioral Workshop!
At the close of the conference, James Morizio, Director of R&D, Wireless Platforms with Harvard Bioscience and former President of Triangle Biosystems (TBSI) – an unbiased third party – blindly pulled two winning tickets from the raffle bin. Plexon is thrilled to announce the two winners:
Thank you, Jim, and congratulations once again to Sofiya and Gabriela! We look forward to seeing you in Dallas next year!
The Window to Fill Orders This Year is Getting Smaller
Thanks to all of the labs we have the honor to serve, our open orders list is a big one this year. Manufacturing is working very hard to keep up, but the window to ship orders for this year is getting smaller each day. If you have an order that must be filled this year, please do all you can to get it in as soon as possible – and please be certain to let us know your constraints when placing the order.
Thank you for being a Plexon customer, and we look forward to serving your research equipment needs for years to come.
Did you know . . . The OmniPlex® System software has an electrode mapping feature?
OmniPlex® software has an electrode mapping feature – mapping layer – that performs arbitrary electrode mapping from the signal inputs into the OmniPlex signal processing functions. There are some styles of electrodes that do not have a consistent mapping (wiring) from electrode positions in an array to pins on the connector.
This is often the case for various silicon probes and arrays. But when stereotrode or tetrode signal processing is required, or even arranging electrodes in some sequence for other reason, the mapping function will rearrange arbitrary electrode signals into sets of dual or quad electrode configurations for sorting.
For more information about electrode mapping, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let us know about your 2014 publication citing Plexon and our equipment and we will send you a thank you award with a mug and a T-shirt! Send notices, address and T-shirt size to email@example.com
