Configurable wide bandwidth wireless digital acquisition system. 256 channel recording wirelessly up to 10 meters or onto MicroSD card.

Very flat frequency response to accurately record both low-frequency Alpha and Theta oscillations, and high-frequency Single Unit Action Potentials.

FreeLynx utilizes a separate, customizable Analog Front End (AFE) interface that easily adapts to multiple FreeLynx standard configurations. This enables the user to optimize weight distribution, record from multiple implant sites, adapt to varying channel counts, or incorporate animal physiology sensors. With this technology, Neuralynx is able to rapidly develop custom AFEs – in 32 channel increments - to meet specified multi-site implant requirements.

Comprehensive line of accessories, including omni-directional video tracking LEDs and securely mounted self-aligning QuickClip® EIBs.

Advancements in Wireless Technology for Single Unit Electrophysiology Recording

  • FreeLynx as a Stand-alone Acquisition System:
    Use Cheetah to directly control a FreeLynx without a Digital Lynx SX, acquiring up to 256 channels per Cheetah / FreeLynx system.

    • Switch between two recording modes at any time:
      • wirelessly transmit data to Cheetah acquisition computer
      • record data to onboard microSD card for later retrieval

  • Combine with Digital Lynx SX:
    One or two FreeLynx (up to 128 channels each) can be used simultaneously with the Digital Lynx SX…

    • Switch between two recording modes at any time:
      • wirelessly transmit up to 128 channels from each FreeLynx OR
      • record up to 256 channels to onboard microSD card for later retrieval

    • Simultaneously record from any Digital Lynx SX input: FreeLynx, Combo Board, Input Board and HS-Mux series headstages
    • Real-time, closed-loop signal processing with HPP

FreeLynx Wireless Setups Mass Comparisons

“Our lab has experimented with a number of wireless data acquisition systems for both rodent and primate electrophysiology. We are very pleased with the recording quality and overall performance of Neuralynx’s [FreeLynx] - which we find to be virtually indistinguishable from traditional wired systems. We would happily recommend this device for any researcher seeking a reliable and user friendly system for performing wireless electrophysiology recording.”
