For a short introduction to our Open-Hardware Support service, please watch this video and get in touch, should you crave more information.
Please note: NeuroGig also offers complete component kits for those who prefer not to purchase materials from multiple suppliers listed on the Bill of Materials.

Riding the wave of the recent DIY and open-source hardware trend, NeuroGig offers a service where it supports increased uptake of a select few, but commonly-used open source Neuroscience instruments.
We are currently compiling a list of typical instruments we are able to build. Part of this process includes receiving nominations from the Neuroscience community.
Therefore, if your laboratory needs an open source instrument, please get in touch. We may be able to assist.
How does this service work?
We provide you with a parts list and quotes from various suppliers according to the open source design. You place an order for the Product Kit and have it delivered to our workshop on the farm. NeuroGig handles assembly and testing at a nominal fee and every instrument includes a warranty.
We also offer optional installation, training and technical support services.
The NINscope (developed, described and published by de Groot et al., 2019) serves as a great open source solution for brain imaging and optogenetic recording. This instrument with its lightweight and small footprint design, was developed for use on small freely behaving animals.
The passive Commutator as developed by Baleckaitis et al., 2016, and modified by our technical team is now available for purchase.
The Openspritzer (developed, described and published by Forman et al., 2017) serves as an alternative open-source micro-ejection/puffer system with similar performance and reliability that you would expect from leading brands, but at a fraction of the cost.
NeuroGig's Open-Hardware Support now offers the Openspritzer, to order either as a complete assembled and tested Openspritzer or as the NeuroGig Openspritzer Kit with optional assembly, testing, installation and a warranty.
The OpenStage (as designed and developed by Campbell et al., 2014) is now available as an open source 3-axis microscope stage from NeuroGig.
Forming part of our Open-Hardware Support service, we can now offer the OpenStage Control System & Mechanics as complete product, fully tested and under warranty. For the do-it-yourself fans out there we further provide OpenStage Kits for self-assembly.
The NeuroGig Faraday Cage design and bill of materials calculator is now an open source tool. Download the calculator on the Faraday Cage page and order your list of materials from your preferred design.
Our team is available to assist you in finding the best solution for your lab or rig as well as the assembly and installation.
