Product Range everything from high resolution to high throughput

With the MEA2100-System, the CMOS-MEA5000-System and the Multiwell-MEA-System, Multi Channel Systems covers the complete range from basic research over high resolution electrophysiology to high throughput screening. Featuring an unmatched sampling rate of up to 50 kHz per channel, all MCS hardware ensures the highest and most accurate data quality.

For more detailed information on the systems, please go the MCS website.



Providing tools for data acquisition and analysis, the Multi Channel Suite is a reliable, flexible, yet powerful software for electrophysiological experiments. From filters to spike detection and stimulation, the software offers various instruments that can be combined easily via drag-and-drop. It comes with all MEA-Systems and can be downloaded for free from the MCS website.

Acquisition and analysis of data from 4225 channels is a challenge, but the CMOS-MEA-Control software makes it easy. It provides a real-time overview on the complete chip and various tools for detailed offline analysis.

The Multiwell-Screen software, which comes with all Multiwell-MEA-Systems, is easy to use, intuitive and guides you through the experiment while offering in-depth analysis. When starting your experiment, you choose between neuronal and cardiac applications and the software then provides instruments according to your experimental needs. As you define your compounds in the software, dose-response curves are displayed online and only seconds after the experiment, you get a detailed report over all experimental parameters and results.

For acquiring and analyzing field potential data from cardiac cells or tissue, the Cardio2D software is the ideal tool. Providing instruments for mapping signal propagation patterns or measuring conduction velocity, Cardio2D is the perfect addition to your MEA2100-System.

The LTP-Director is a specialized software solution to run standardized LTP (long-term potentiation) experiments in hippocampal slices. It features complete control of recording and stimulation, as well as automated perfusion, online data analysis, and documentation of the experiments.
