– The Wireless Electrical Stimulator works with the Invilog In Vivo Voltammetry Setup or any lab stimulator that provides 3-5 V output pulses.
– You can use either a one channel lab stimulator to stimulate many animals equipped with these devices or a multi-channel stimulator to obtain an individual schedule of stimulation for each animal located within 4 meters of the transmitter. Invilog also provides a Wireless Stimulation Setup that includes its own stimulator.
– This tiny device, weighing only 1.7 g, is transiently attached to the fixed-on-skull connector of the stimulating electrode. We use either Invilog or a customer-defined connector.
– It can deliver 50 – 200 uA, 0.2 – 40 ms constant current pulses at 1 – 500 Hz during an experiment lasting for as long as 40 hours (alternatively, you can use it 10 days, 4 hour stimulation per day). If one requires a longer period of stimulation, then just change the battery, which can be done in a few seconds; the battery itself is inexpensive, costing only 0.5 euro.
Wireless stimulator v1.1 includes the device with four fixed- step current levels and an infrared transmitter.
Wireless stimulator v1.2 includes the device equipped with a current adjusting potentiometer and calibrator.
