Optogenetic studies allow researchers to target the area in the brain they are studying with higher precision due to the use of light instead of a fluid substance. Light has a direct path and can be controlled, whereas fluids can affect more or less of the area the researcher wants to target. Light is also less invasive than electrical stimulation and causes less and possibly even reversible damage to the animal.
Researchers performing these studies are constantly searching for ways to improve the process and achieve higher precision. P1 Technologies offers single and bilateral cannula for studies using fiber optics.
Our cannulas are made specifically for your needs and offer higher precision and more reliability than cannulas made in labs due to the stringent quality testing we perform before shipping. We offer cannula options for 200UM, 300UM and 400UM fiber sizes.
