The MEA2100-System is the most versatile in vitro recording system from Multi Channel Systems. You can record from neuronal or cardiac cultures, stem cells, or brain or cardiac slices.
It is based on an idea from the 1970’s, when Thomas et al. found that electrical activity can be recorded extracellularly with microelectrode arrays (MEA). Over the decades, many peer-reviewed articles have proven that the MEA technology is indeed a very powerful tool in electrophysiology research and the technology around the MEA has improved significantly.
Today, the MEA2100-System is a very compact solution with integrated amplifier and stimulus generator, temperature control, and the option for real-time signal detection and feedback.
The main advantage of the MEA2100-System is its flexibility. Various headstage types facilitate the usage of different MEAs. You can record from up to 4 MEAs in parallel, all at a sampling rate of 50 kHz per channel, ensuring an excellent data quality.
