Fiber Coupled Lime Green LED for Optogenetics in Freely Moving Mammals
The Prizmatix Optogenetics-LED-Lime-Green
module is specially designed to provide high
power Lime-Green light to activate
Archaerhodopsin (Arch) or other Green light
activated opsins in optogenetics experiments
with freely moving mammals. This LED source
provides powerful light irradiance
at fiber optic cannula tip following
all fiber-optic connections including Rotary
Optical power and irradiance data for full Optogenetics system including Optogenetics-LED-Lime-Green,
fiber patch cord, Rotary Joint, Dual / Single fiber
and fiber optic cannula (implant):
Optical Power from 200μm cannula
Optical Power from 250μm cannula
Optical Power from 500μm cannula
Irradiance from 200μm cannula
Prizmatix‘s unique large emitter LEDs enable
bilateral stimulation with a single low cost light
source and simple one channel rotary joint.
Using a simple Y-shaped fiber bundle at the rotary joint
will double the amount of light delivered to the brain,
each branch delivering virtually the same power as a single fiber.
This results in significant cost saving in setting up bilateral
brain activation and silencing systems, compared to alternative light sources.
Want to do implant (cannula) by yourself?
We offer DIY cannula components
such as high NA fibers and ceramic ferrules for online purchases.
Prizmatix's Rotary Joint has very low torque and friction, with minimal impact on behavior. Prizmatix's Rotary
Joint is specially designed for Optogenetics experiments with High NA detachable fibers equipped with FC
connectors. Rotary Joint can be used with single or multiple output fibers simultaneously, enabling
concurrent delivery of light to separate areas of the brain without loss of power or brightness.

Prizmatix Implantable Fiberoptic Cannulae / Ferrules allow direct light stimulation of certain deep brain
regions in living animals. Each Cannula (implant) consists of a zirconia ferrule accommodating a high NA
Silica/POF fiber, protruding from the zirconia ferrule at the specified length. Prizmatix offer standard
cannulae for Mice and Ret and customized products including customized fiber protruding lengths without
additional customization fees. For more details please see:
Prizmatix provides diverse fiber optics solutions for Optogenetics in-vivo. Made of silica, glass or polymer,
these high NA fibers can be constructed to fit any research set-up with various combinations of connectors,
ferrules, core diameters and lengths. Examples include single stainless steel coverings of bare tipped fibers,
or Y-shaped fibers for simultaneous stimulation of two hemispheres. For more details please see:
The Pulser - USB pulse train generator with user friendly software is an easy way to generate trains of pulses
for Optogenetics activation directly from your computer. The Trigger-In input enables synchronization of
Optogenetics activation with various experimental events. For more details please see:
