Light, Lighter, Exilis.

CerePlex Exilis is Blackrock’s next step into a wireless future. We strongly believe that all neuroscience research plays an equally important role in improving the lives of patients around the world. Small animal research needs special equipment in terms of size and weight. CerePlex Exilis fills the gap and enables rodent researchers to cut the wires.

The CerePlex Exilis is a lightweight, wireless digital headstage that provides a platform for freely behaving small animal models. It offers unprecedented quantities of neural data via wireless transmission while keeping an ultra low weight and size, enabling many novel research paradigms.
