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.

Rotary Joint

Prizmatix Rotary Joint is especially designed for Optogenetics experiments with High NA fibers equipped with FC connectors. Rotary Joint very low friction and smooth swivel operation are demonstrated in this video - showing continuous rotation for over 30 seconds after a fingertip startup. The torque required for free movement is very low thus reducing the Rotary Joint's behavioral effect on freely moving animals.
Prizmatix Rotary Joint can be used with large core input optical fiber connected to several thin output fibers simultaneously. This allows concurrent delivery of light to separate areas of the brain without loss of power due to the fiber split.

Optogenetics Implantable Cannulae

Prizmatix Implantable Fiberoptic Cannulae / Ferrules allow direct light stimulation of certain deep brain regions in living animals. Each Cannula consists of a Zirconia ferrule accommodating a high NA Silica optical fiber, protruding from the Zirconia ferrule at a desired length.
See Optogenetics Implantable Cannulae product details


Single/Dual Fibre

Prizmatix provides a full solution to the optogenetics in vivo and in vitro fiber optics. Made of silica or polymer fibers, the high NA fibers are assembled to fit any research set-up with various combinations of connectors, ferrules, core diameters and lengths. Some examples are Y-shaped fibers for simultaneous in-vivo stimulation of two hemispheres, and fibers with stainless steel tip with protruding bare fibers for in-vitro activation of brain slices under a microscope.

Fiberoptics for Optogenetics


Fiber Patch Cords

Prizmatix offers a wide range of standard and customized multi-mode silica / polymer fibers as well as ferrules for optogenetics research. A Y-shaped fiber bundle is especially useful for activating two brain hemispheres simultaneously: a 1000µm or 1500µm fiber is coupled to the LED and connected to one side of the Rotary Joint. From the Joint's other side emerge two thin fibers which can then be connected to two separate ferrules: the light from the LED is divided equally between the two hemispheres without any loss of power.


Optogenetics Pulser is a programmable TTL pulse train generator for pulsing LEDs, lasers and shutters used in Optogenetics activation. The Pulser device comes with user friendly software that enables easy visual setup of numerous pulse train configurations. See Pulser product details
