The NL100AK AC Pre-Amplifier Headstage is a differential input, low noise, high impedance buffer amplifier suitable for low noise extracellular recording, primarily with metal electrodes, including tungsten micro-electrodes.
The NL100AK AC Pre-Amplifier Headstage is supplied as standard with a removable 6.4mm diameter stainless steel manipulator mounting rod. Power is provided by the NL104A AC pre-amplifier via a 4 way lemo plug and socket, however, this headstage can also be used in conjunction with older NeuroLog System amplifiers (NL103, NL104, NL107), as well as the newer NL109 Bridge Amplifier, please specify with your order. Each NL100AK headstage is supplied with an NL973A Accessory Kit which contains 1mm and 2mm plugs, a U-shaped input jumper and an allen key.
