PlexBright Software

As part of the PlexBright family of integrated products for research incorporating optogenetics, Radiant is a sophisticated program for controlling the PlexBright 4 Channel Optogenetic Controller. Radiant offers simple to complex signal pattern generation for the operation of both LEDs and lasers. 

PlexStim Software

The PlexStim™ electrical stimulator is an electrically isolated, individually programmable, 16 channel, constant current stimulator system. It is compatible with Plexon's OmniPlex® data acquisition systems and/or the CinePlex® Behavioral Research System.

**PlexStim Software 2.3 supporting up to 64 channels now available**

MAP Software

A suite of client/server programs - called RASPUTIN - that controls spike sorting in the Multichannel Acquisition Processor (MAP) Data Acquisition System.

**MAP Software is now frozen and no longer being updated**
