The program covers a spectrum of preclinical research and translation across all therapeutic areas, and will include a variety of Maestro MEA research and data. Learn more about this landmark event here.

ISSCR logo ISSCR 2019 (June 26-29 | Los Angeles, CA | Booth 621)

In the Los Angeles area June 26-29? Come by booth 621 to see how Maestro research is impacting the field of stem cell research and to learn more about the world's most advanced MEA systems.  While at the show, don't miss the numerous posters featuring Maestro MEA data, including ours titled:

"Multiwell microelectrode array technology for the evaluation of human iPSC-derived cardiomyocyte and neuron development, optimization, and validation."

 ... AxIS Tips
Stack Plots Stack Plots 

AxIS Navigator provides flexible options for visualizing data. Typically, the individual electrode data plots are displayed in a grid according to the physical layout of the electrodes in each well. However, AxIS Navigator also provides an option to vertically stack the electrode plots in each well, facilitating comparison of beat or burst timing across the entire well. Continuous waveform plots, spike plots, and cardiac beat plots can all be plotted in a vertical stack by right-clicking on any electrode plot and selecting Stack Plots
