Manipulator system for multiple Neuropixels probe recordings

node:body | entity_field

Flexible and ergonomic movement control for multiple Neuropixels probes

Extracellular recordings require accurate and ergonomic manipulation of the recording electrodes. The Svoboda Lab and Janelia Experimental Technology group have developed a flexible manipulator system specifically for recordings with multiple Neuropixels probes.

We provide designs and documentation to recreate a manipulation rig for non-profit and academic researchers. Following the link below, researchers can access the designs for replication by agreeing to an open-source non-commercial designs license. The researchers can have the rig constructed by their shops or consultants as needed.


Designs free at Flintbox for non-profit research through the link to the right.

Commercial licenses are also available by contacting

Please reference Tech ID 2020-004 or "Neuropixels Manipulation System"
