New Electrical Plus Optical Commutator
Plexon’s newsletter from November 27, 2013 introduces Plexon’s newest PlexBright electrical and optical commutator and PlexBright Light Measurement Kit.
|November 27, 2013|
Thank you for making this Neuroscience conference the best one yet! We really enjoyed meeting so many new faces and seeing so many old friends. We will be following-up with everyone, but should you need something from us faster than we are reacting now, please simply send us an email to email@example.com and we will get right on it.
For those of you that scored a limited edition 30th Anniversary GREEN T-shirt or coffee mug, hang on to it . . . . I’m certain that it will be valuable on eBay in a few years! Next year and forevermore, Plexon will be back to Plexon blue giveaways.
Congratulations to the Workshop Registration Raffle Winners
Workshop dates: March 17-20, 2014
At the close of Neuroscience 2013, Terry Echard, President of Lafayette Instrument Company and an unbiased third party, blindly pulled two winning tickets from the raffle bin. Plexon is thrilled to announce the two winners:
Thank you, Terry, and congratulations once again to the winners! We look forward to seeing you in Dallas next year!
NEW PlexBright™ Electrical and Optical Commutator
It is now official – the new PlexBright™ Dual LED + 16 Channel Commutator that many had a chance to see at Neuroscience 2013 has been released! Earlier this year, Plexon launched the first commutator of its kind – the PlexBright Dual LED Commutator – specifically designed to aid in the management of optical patch cables during behavioral research.
Plexon now takes it a step further to offer the PlexBright Dual LED + 16 Channel Commutator – an advanced commutator that enables mixed cable management during simultaneous optogenetic stimulation and neural recording. Like its predecessor, this new commutator has a light-weight, low-torque, passive design that supports optogenetic experiments with animals as small as mice. However, the Dual LED + 16 Channel Commutator uniquely incorporates 21 additional lines supporting up to 16 channels of neural data transmission.

NEW PlexBright Light Measurement Kit
As research utilizing optogenetics continues to grow exponentially, many labs are exploring different products with the same critical endpoint in mind – achieving the highest power output at the tissue interface for a targeted wavelength. Thus, it is paramount that output intensities are verified and confirmed.
To provide certainty regarding optogenetic stimulation at any and all points within the stimulation equipment pathway, Plexon has partnered with ThorLabs to develop a customized Light Measurement Kit designed to accurately measure the output from any PlexBright LED Module, Optical Patch Cable or Fiber Stub Implant. The kit combines a specific power meter, photodetector and custom developed photodetector adaptors to properly connect and position PlexBright components for accurate measurement.
The PlexBright Light Measurement Kit is an essential part of any PlexBright Optogenetic Stimulation System permitting the verification of expected output, as well as enabling dependable troubleshooting. Further, with the removal of the PlexBright Photodetector Adaptors, the photodetector can be used with an unlimited number of third party products. The PlexBright Light Measurement Kit is available as a complete package, or for those already utilizing the ThorLabs S140C integrating sphere photodetector, the PlexBright Photodetector Adaptors can be purchased separately.
Let us know about your 2013 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.
