      Have you been using Neurotar’s HeadFix or your custom head fixation solution for in vivo experiments under anesthesia? Ready to go awake? Or are you already working with awake head-fixed mice restrained in a tube or running on a treadmill and want to let them move in two dimensions? In both cases, the AirLift is the natural next step.

      Benefits of Neurotar’s air table

      • Converts the HeadFix into a fully functional system for 2-photon imaging or electrophysiological recordings in awake mice locomoting in 2D (the Mobile HomeCage);
      • Allows using your custom head fixation to enable imaging or electrophysiological recordings in awake mice locomoting in 2D;
      • Compact, compatible with the majority of commercial two-photon microscopes;
      • When combined with Neurotar’s tracking upgrade, allows integrating locomotion tracking and other behavioral readouts;
      • Operates from standard laboratory air sources and from a portable air pump.
