Inscopix announced today that the company's miniature microscope-based brain mapping platform was used to empower at least 60 presentations at the 49th annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN), held October 19-23 in Chicago. The company will also unveil product updates at Inscopix's booth #507.
"We are honored to have played a role in enabling 60 scientific presentations this year at SfN, a new milestone since our commercial launch at the 2012 SfN meeting in New Orleans," said Kunal Ghosh, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Inscopix. "While most of these presentations are based on rodent models, we will introduce our first study in the rhesus macaque, expanding our platform to non-human primates. We will also launch new software and workflow products that unlock the increasing functionality and efficiency of our brain-mapping platform. These innovations will allow brain researchers across the spectrum to catalyze new breakthroughs with speed and scientific rigor."
Innovative New Products for Brain Mapping
Inscopix will introduce innovative new products at SfN which offer groundbreaking features, greatly streamline the workflow, expand applications for diverse animal models and facilitate integration with other brain mapping modalities. Innovative new software features will enable researchers to map neuronal activity in multiple planes simultaneously, thereby dramatically increasing the number of cells that can be imaged in a brain structure. Other software innovations include data compression to greatly decrease time of transfer, which enables labs to efficiently increase the scale of their studies and streamline projects.
To streamline the workflow, Inscopix is launching an expanded portfolio of its Proviewtm Express Probes and Proviewtm Integrated Lenses to remove workflow steps and significantly reduce the time to imaging. Expansion of animal model solutions include new Ready-to-Image Viruses for rat and new protocols for marmoset, a non-human primate model. Data will also be presented highlighting co-registration of confocal imaging with Inscopix technology for two-color imaging in freely behaving animals.
Four abstracts will be presented by Inscopix scientists, including one oral presentation describing the use of its nVoke product to observe deep layers of premotor cortex activity during naturalistic motor behavior in rhesus macaques. Inscopix will provide details of additional abstracts throughout the annual meeting via its corporate Twitter account (@Inscopix).
