The Alpha MED Scientific Inc. MED64 MEA systems are aimed at researchers in neuroscience, cardiovascular research, pharmacology and toxicology. The most appropriate system for a given application is essentially determined by the number and type of samples being used.
The MED64 Multielectrode Array range currently comprises five different systems: –
- MED64 – Basic – A basic Multi-Electrode Array system suitable for all applications (Acute slices, Cultured cells, Slice cultures).
- MED64 – Quad II – The most sensitive and flexible medium throughput MEA system for both acute and cultured applications.
- MED64 – Allegro – The most sensitive medium throughput MEA system with multiple wells. Ideal for drug testing using stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes/neurons.
- MED64 – Plex 4/8 – A Medium throughput system for recording from 64 electrodes on 4 or 8 samples.
- MED64 – Presto – A NEW all in one temperature-controlled MEA system specifically developed for the multi-well (6, 24, 48, 96) format.
All the MED64 systems are supplied with their dedicated Mobius software, which can be configured specifically for the intended cell and preparation type and application. Mobius is module-based software and comes in a range of application-specific packages, including “Evoked Potential Measurement”, “Spike Sorter”, “QT” as well as combined packages for multi-application users.
It features a varied set of analysis tools including spike frequency and waveform analysis. Online and offline analysis of all acquisition channels is possible. Raw data and analysis results can be exported for analysis with another software.
MED64 – Basic
MED64-Basic System is a user-friendly microelectrode array (MEA) system for in vitro extracellular electrophysiology. It features with the industry’s most sensitive MEA system, providing high-quality reliable data. Created by Panasonic, the MED64 has been on market for 20 years and has hundreds of users and publications worldwide.
MED64 – Quad II
MED64-Quad II system is a medium throughput MEA system for acute and cultured applications. Extracellular signals are recorded from 4 independent Probes/Connectors, which gives high flexibility. It is a powerful solution for drug discovery screening. The MED64’s high fidelity provides more accurate and reliable data allowing for advanced screening.
MED64 – Allegro
MED64-Allegro System is a medium throughput MEA system for cultured applications. It is an ideal solution for drug testing using stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes or/and neurons. The MED64’s high fidelity provides accurate and reliable data allowing advanced screening as well as analysis during the testing.
MED64 – Plex 4/8
MED64-Plex 4/8 System is a medium throughput MEA system allowing recording at all 64 electrodes from 4 or 8 samples. The MED64’s high fidelity will provide more accurate and reliable data allowing advanced screening.
MED64 – Mobius Software
The MED64 Mobius is the data acquisition and analysis software for the all MED64 Systems. It is designed to be easy for beginners and powerful enough for advanced users. Mobius is module-based software and comes in various application-specific packages including “Evoked Potential Measurement”, “Spike Sorter”, “QT” as well as combined packages for multi-application users.
The MED Probe has multiple microelectrodes embedded in the center of a transparent glass plate. The surrounding glass (or plastic) cylinder makes the MED Probe a self-contained recording chamber. The MED Probe features the industry’s lowest-impedance electrodes (10 kΩ at 1 kHz for 50 μm electrodes). It provides excellent signal-to-noise ratio and capabilities of stimulation.
