What's New


Coming in 2018 ...

Quanteon is working to improve your electrochemical and electrophysiological recording experience.  Coming in 2018 is the new FAST16mkIV Amperometry system with simultaneous LFP recording capabilities.

The FAST16mkIV has been optimized for improved performance with our new lower noise mHATS. Our new Matlab® based software has improved integration with our Matlab®-based analysis package as well as a revised and simpler user interface and new features.  Please stay tuned for further details and announcements in the near future.
