Inscopix stands at the forefront of Next Generation Neuroscience. Our flagship product for imaging large-scale neural circuit activity during behavior, nVista, provides neuroscientists with the ability to generate unprecedented data sets. The product was selected by The Scientist as the #1 Innovation of 2013 and has been covered in top scientific journals and media outlets. Since launching our Neuroscience Early Access Program in October 2012, we have built a significant customer base comprised of nearly 100 prestigious neuroscience laboratories (including 6 Nobel Laureate labs) and major pharmaceutical companies. In late 2016, we introduced our second-generation product, nVoke, combining the neural circuit imaging of nVista with optogenetic manipulation.
