LABNIRS fNIRS system is the Next-Generation optical brain-function imaging system made by Shimadzu Corporation Japan. The SHIMADZU LABNIRS is freely configurable and uses multichannel laser technology to be used on any part of the head and in combination with EEG (made by BioSemi BV). The SHIMADZU LABNIRS fNIRS System combines true laser (photo-multiplier technology) illumination and innovative active detection technology for all application for research in brain imaging solutions. This opens a wide field of innovative research purposes where accuracy of measurement, numerous paradigm creation and power of light transmitters is sought for. Some applications for the SHIMADZU LABNIRS fNIRS System (there is no medical certification on the device for medical diagnosis though) include bedside monitoring, research in sports medicine, intensive care, neonatal imaging, rehabilitation, freely moving subjects, interacting cognitive studies, driver/pilot vigilance, brain computer interface and neuro-radiological applications etc.


System Features

  • High Performance: high-speed sampling, multichannel and high-density recording, sensitivity from the combination of 3 wavelengths and photomultiplier tube
  • Easy Operation: intuitive user interface, simple clicks to measure and analyse data
  • Outstanding Scalability: comprehensive measurement options, increase the number of channels according to the aim of the experiment
