Prizmatix In-Vivo Optogenetics Toolbox
for Freely Moving Mammals

Prizmatix offers a full range of modules for in-vivo optogenetics starting from the single wavelength plug-and-go Optogenetics-LED for photoactivation to multi-wavelength systems for activation and silencing, with speeds of better than millisecond-scale temporal precision.

From light source to cannula and everything in between, Prizmatix can provide all the components necessary for your research – including advice and guidance.

Optogenetics LEDs

  (see [1] on drawing)

The high-power fiber-coupled Prizmatix Optogenetics-LED light source available at Violet, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red and Deep Red wavelengths for activation or silencing of various Optogenetics opsins. The LED can be triggered by a standard TTL signal and the power can be precisely controlled by 10 turn potentiometer or by 0-5V analog signal. Single or Dual independent channels as well as stimulation and silencing by same fiber devices are available.

Single / Dual Optogenetics Fiber

  (see [2]) on drawing

Prizmatix provides diverse fiber optics solutions for optogenetics in-vivo. Made of silica 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. See more ...

Rotary Joint

  (see [3]) on drawing

Watch as Prizmatix's Rotary Joint spins freely for over 30 seconds, benefiting from 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.

Prizmatix 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. See more..


Optogenetics Implantable Cannulae

  (see [4] on drawing)

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/POF fiber, protruding from the zirconia ferrule at the specified length.

Sleeves for Implantable Cannulae

Prizmatix Sleeves are small ceramic or metal parts that enable proper alignment and connection between the Optogenetics-fiber ferrule and the implant (cannula) ferrule. The Sleeves are available for 1.25 mm diameter (Mice) and 2.5 mm diameter (Rat) cannulae.
