PlexBright Table-Top LED Modules
At the heart of the PlexBright® Optogenetic Stimulation System are the cost-effective and powerful PlexBright LED Modules for standard use, Table-Top Modules. A full spectrum of wavelengths enables you to get the most out of your research whether you are performing acute or chronic in vivo experiments or in vitro preparations.
**NEW Near-infrared and Ultraviolet LED Modules.**
PlexBright Table-Top LED Modules for standard use are small devices most often chosen to support: 1) in vitro work; 2) in vivo experiments with anesthetized animals, or; 3) in vivo experiments with behaving animals when a commutator is not required to prevent tangling of cables.
PlexBright LED Modules come in a wide range of wavelengths and are capable of emitting continuous, stable, and quick-responding light through the tip of a 200μm core, custom developed optical fiber. PlexBright Table-Top are available in the following seventeen wavelengths: Royal (450nm), Blue (465nm), Green (525nm), Lime (550nm), Yellow (590nm), Orange (620nm), Red (630nm) Crimson (660nm), Infrared 1 (850nm), Infrared 2 (940nm), Near-Infrared 1 (740nm), Near-Infrared 2 (760nm), Near-Infrared 3 (780nm), Near-Infrared 4 (810nm), Ultraviolet 1 (365nm), Ultraviolet 2 (385nm), and Ultraviolet 3 (405nm). Our ever-expanding series of powerful, fiber-coupled PlexBright LED Modules effectively elicit responses from several opsins targeted in neuroresearch, including channelrhodopsins (ChRs), archaerhodopsins (Arch) and halorhodopsins (NpHR).
For maximum power output to the stimulation site, high performance PlexBright Optical Patch Cables have been designed to easily connect to the modules. It is important to note that our PlexBright Optical Patch Cables are LED module style-specific.
PlexBright Starter Kits offer the initial products to get started. Kits are available in four experimental designs and with either driver (the economical kit with the LD-1 Single Channel LED Driver or the fully functional kit with the PlexBright 4 Channel Optogenetic Controller with Radiant Software).
In addition to super intensity PlexBright LED Modules, Optical Patch Cables and Commutators, the PlexBright Optogenetic Stimulation System also offers the PlexBright LD-1 Single Channel LED Driver; the more sophisticated PlexBright 4 Channel Optogenetic Controller running Radiant™ Software; specially designed PlexBright Fiber Stub Implants; the PlexBright Light Measurement Kit; and the PlexBright Optical Fiber Cleaning Kit to safely maintain and extend the life of the fiber tips. If your experiments include freely behaving animals, you may also be interested in learning more about the CinePlex® and CineLyzer® Behavioral Research Systems.
