New Analysis Tools Update

Stuck at home? Use this time to catch-up on your data analysis. The latest version of the Cardiac Analysis Tool offers many new features for LEAP analysis. Multiple LEAP files can now be analyzed simultaneously. LEAP waveforms from each electrode can now be viewed in the Golden Channel File Selector. In addition, new metrics such as Rise Time and Triangulation are now included in exported data.

The Neural Metric Tool and the AxIS Metric Plotting Tool have also been updated with new features. Please visit to download the new software and find supporting material.

Maestro Pro with Review stars 4.9/5

"Fascinating results, easy to use, important for publication"

"MEA recording was easy, very straightforward and intuitive. This is a non-intrusive and simple way to measure electrical and functional abilities of neuronal cultures. It's giving us interesting results and has been a great addition to our work. This is a new endeavor for the field of neuroscience…"
