High Density Recording Package (A-M Systems)
A-M Systems  Model 4000 MultiRecord  High Density Recording Package


From 31 to 217 Channels, complete with headstages, amplifiers, and data acquisition and analysis software.

High Channel Counts:   124 Channels Over a 6-Line Commutator

Cost Effective:   62 Channels of Data for Under $650 per Channel

Range of Applications:    Evoked Responses, Field Potentials, EEG, ECG/EKG, ERG, EMG

Is the size of your commutator limiting how many channels of neural data you can record?   Stuck at 2 channels, when you want to record more then 30? Or perhaps you want to record up to 217 Channels from an awake behaving animal, but can't afford the design, engineering, and production of a custom commutator to allow it?

Now you can record what you want as much as you want! With the new MultiRecord System!

Utilize a simple commutator to record high channel counts:

Cost Effective:

Perfect for a wide variety of investigations:


The MultiRecord system is capable of recording from 31 to 247 channels simultaneously from freely moving animals using a simple commutator. For example, a 31-channel system only requires a 3-line commutator thanks to the creative use of multiplexing technology found in the TBSI headstage package. Need to record from 62 channels? Then, you only need a 4-line commutator, rather then a break-the-bank custom engineered 62-line commutator. Several commutator options are available. Please contact us to determine the best commutator for your needs.

The unique TBSI headstage multiplexes the analog output prior to the commutator, and then re-sorts them to separate channels after the commutator. For additional information on the headstage package, click here.

The signals are then passed to the A-M Systems Model 4000 amplifier, where they are amplified and filtered according to the user-set control panels within SciWorks Data Acquisition and Analysis package. For more information on the Model 4000 MultiRecord Amplifier, click here.

Using SciWorks® Discovery, the user can perform real-time data analysis, including multi-unit spike sorting and separation, generate complicated stimulation patterns, and write data to a multiple of common industry defined data formats. Data Acquisition and Data Analysis processes are seamlessly integrated into a single software package. Users can define how the experiment should be run, collect data, run complicated anaylsis tools, and store raw and analyzed data all at the same time, without having to change software packages.

The MultiRecord System will enable any laboratory to incorporate high-density extracellular recording in awake behaving animals without having to spend US$100,000.

The MultiRecord 31 Channel system, including miniature headstage, commutator, amplifiers, and the Sciworks® software package on sale now for under US$30,000.

MATLAB® and LabVIEW SDK and drivers are also available on request.
