The 3-channel rat EEG system is a configurable tethered setup capable of recording 2 EEG and 1 EMG for sleep or seizure or 3 EEG for seizure studies in rats. The 8200 system is designed to deliver the cleanest, artifact free waveforms through the use of a headmounted preamplifier.
The 3ch rat EEG system comes with multiple configurations for each users planned application.
Kits are ordered by preamplifier configuration:
SL: 2 EEG/1 EMG for Sleep
SE: 2 EEG/1 EMG for Seizure
SE3: 3 EEG for Seizure
KIN: 3 EEG for Kindling*
The kit includes the following (quantities are 1 unless otherwise noted):
8206-HR: Data Conditioning and Acquisition System
8213: Rat Preamplifier
8214: Rat Commutator/Swivel
8258: 14″ Mounting Plate
Made by Pinnacle Technology.
Cables for one animal, software and manuals are also included.
For first time buyers, we recommend purchasing a rat EEG accessory kit (8200-K4) to complement the hardware system.
*Pinnacle’s kindling rat system gives researchers the ability to record three channels of EEG waveforms while also applying a stimulus of up to 100 V. The kindling preamplifier features three fully independent channels, two of which are stimulus compatible.
Pinnacle offers biopotential recording systems for sleep, seizure and general research paradigms in freely moving mice and rats. Their mouse EEG/EMG systems use head-mounted amplification to produce exceptionally clean waveforms, even during animal movement. Researchers can simultaneously record three channels of EEG and/or EMG data. The data conditioning and acquisition system (DCAS) and preamplifier are preconfigured and ordered as a matching pair. Standard configurations include 2 EEG/1 EMG and 3 EEG.
Do your experiments require a mouse EEG system with optogenetics, biosensors for neurotransmitter detection or extra features? See our 4ch EEG system that accommodates additional features.
Pinnacle Technology also offer a range of wireless EEG/EMG systems for mice and rats. See their range of wireless products here.
Note: Cage and stand are not included in the 8200-K2 system.
