4-Ch Tethered Rat System (8400-K2)

Pinnacle Technology

The 8400-K2 tethered rat system is a configurable 4-channel recording system. Users can add optogenetics, an accelerometer or biosensors, or simply change the EEG/EMG channel arrangement.

Users may select low-pass filters and gain settings. EEG, EMG and biosensor data are amplified and filtered at the head of the rat by the preamplifier. Two biosensor inputs can be acquired on a single channel. Signals are then passed through the rat commutator and swivel (8409) to the data conditioning and acquisition system (8401-HS) for final stage conditioning and filtering.

Acquisition and review software is provided at no cost. Preamplifiers are sold in separate kits based on configuration.

The 8400-K2 tethered rat system is a configurable 4-channel recording system. Users can add optogenetics, an accelerometer or biosensors, or simply change the EEG/EMG channel arrangement. 

The kit includes the following (all quantities are one):

8401-HR: Data Conditioning and Acquisition System
8409: Rat Commutator and Swivel
8426: 18″ Mounting Plate
9002: USB Cable

Cables for one animal, software and manuals are also included.

The preamplifier kit is used with the 4-Channel Tethered Rat System (8400-K2). The kit includes preamplifier and all necessary one-time-purchase accessories, as well as enough surgical supplies/disposables to complete initial surgeries.

Kits are ordered by preamplifier configuration:

2BIO: 1 or 2 Biosensor
SL-BAS: 2 EEG/1 EMG/1 Biosensor for Sleep
SE-BAS: 2 EEG/1 EMG/1 Biosensor for Seizure
SE3-BAS: 3 EEG/1 Biosensor for Seizure
SE31M: 3 EEG/1 EMG for Seizure
SE4: 4 EEG for Seizure
SE4-REF: 4 EEG Fully Referential for Seizure

Pinnacle offers biopotential recording systems for sleep, seizure and general research paradigms in freely moving mice and rats. Their tethered rat 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.

If your experiments do not require any additional features, Pinnacle Technology offer a range of 3 channel EEG/EMG systems found here.

Pinnacle Technology also offer a range of wireless EEG/EMG systems for mice and rats. See their range of wireless products here.
