Harvard Bioscience Comprehensive Suite of Neurology Tools Featured
Innovative products from Harvard Bioscience’s three commercial units—Electrophysiology (Ephys), Data Sciences International (DSI) and Physiology, Cell and Molecular Instruments (PCMI)—will be at Booths # 2813, #1920 and #2829, respectively.
Electrophysiology (Ephys) – Booth #2813
Ephys is exhibiting its new combined Smart Ephys in vivo wireless system, which enables the use of lightweight and reliable headstages from Triangle BioSystems (TBSI) with cutting-edge Multi Channel Systems (MCS) data acquisition and software. Additional new products include a 32-channel micro preamplifier offering a smaller, more cost-effective headstage option for recordings not requiring stimulation that wish to retain the advantages of MCS’s tethered in vivo ME2100-System and the next generation of valve control systems from Warner Instruments with a 7” touch screen for even easier operation and control.

Data Sciences International (DSI) – Booth #1920
DSI will be displaying new implants for neuroscience that enable the continuous collection of up to four biopotential channels (typically EEG and EMG), plus temperature and activity for use in research areas such as sleep, seizure, affective disorders, movement disorders and neurodegenerative disorders. New implants for continuous glucose measurement will also be presented that allow the collection of stress-free data, with fewer blood draws and fewer animals. The implants are now available for mice, rats and large animals. In addition, DSI will be available to discuss video-EEG for enhancing neuroscience research. Video-EEG animal models allow researchers to better understand neuronal activity as well as diagnose and develop pharmaceutical drugs. DSI offers solutions for collecting and analyzing Video-EEG data including hardwired systems, implantable telemetry, video cameras and software.

Physiology, Cell and Molecular Instruments (PCMI) – Booth #2829
BTX is showing solutions to advance all aspects of life science research from electroporation and electrofusion equipment to micro-volume spectrophotometers to the most accurate pen-sized pipettors and everything in between. New this year is the ECM 830 Mammalian Transfection System, a multifunctional square wave electroporation generator that is ideal for delivery of molecules of interest into mammalian cells and tissues with high transfection efficiencies, including difficult-to-transfect cell types such as stem cells and primary cells. It has a well-established publication record, including CRISPR gene editing technologies. The booth will also show other tools from Biochrom, Hoefer, Coulbourn Instruments, Panlab and CMA.
