open-source electrophysiology

The first shipment arrives...

Added on by Open Ephys.

This week we received a shipment of five fully assembled Open Ephys acquisition boards from Advanced Circuits. Previously, all of our boards had been assembled by hand, a process that takes 2-3 hours per system. In order to spread our tools beyond our labs, we needed to outsource the manufacturing.

After running the boards through a battery of tests, we're happy to report that everything is working exactly as expected. We're now ready to order an additional 45 units, which we'll distribute to labs around the world for beta testing.
