Innovations in Electrophysiology



Multi Channel Systems, the market leader in MEA-technology, is proud to present the Multiwell-MEA-System.

It is the perfect solution for medium to high throughput electrophysiology. Featuring a 24- or 96-well plate format, it is especially suited for safety pharmacology and toxicity screenings.

Being based on the MEA2100-technology, it includes high-quality, low-noise amplifiers, freely-programmable stimulators, and a digital signal processor for individual analyses.

One big advantage of the Multiwell-MEA-System is the high sampling rate. Your data is sampled at up to 50 kHz per channel (simultaneously on all channels). Thus, the accuracy of your data is guaranteed, whether you record from cardiac or neuronal samples.

The data is recorded and analyzed by the included software Multiwell-Screen.

As part of the system, the MCS-IFB 3.0 Multiboot is a new interface board generation which is able to receive data from a MEA2100-Headstage, a Multiwell-MEA-Headstage, a CMOS-MEA5000-Headstage, a MCS-SCU or a W2100-Receiver. This makes cost-effective combinations with only one interface board and multiple recording systems possible. You can establish for example your experiments on 60, 120, or 256 electrodes with the MEA2100-System, then add the Multiwell-MEA-Headstage and start high-throughput screening. It's also possible to use the same interface board for in vitro MEA experiments and tethered / wireless in vivo recordings. This leaves you with even more flexibility in switching between possible configurations for your specific research needs.

Key features:

  • Real-time signal detection and feedback
  • Freely programmable DSP
  • Multiple inputs/outputs, including digital, analog, and audio
  • SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports
