Axis Tips Stimulation Studio makes electrical stimulation easy

AxIS Navigator’s Stimulation Studio has built-in cardiac and neural stimulation blocks with optimized stimulation parameters and artifact removal, making the design of electrical stimulation protocols easy. Simply drag the heart (cardiac applications) or brain (neural applications) block into the lane and specify the stimulation frequency using the Global Repeat Settings bar, select which wells/electrodes to stimulate, and press Start.
