Our Business

Settled comfortably between such noteworthy institutions, such as Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State University, our business flourishes thanks to our determination to anticipate and adapt to the unique demands of the neuroscience research community.


Our foremost goal is to equip scientists with their optimal neural interfacing laboratory setup. Many of our customers choose our business over competitors because we take the time to understand every detail of their work to determine their most empowering solution.


We have the capability to partner with universities, institutions, and companies to develop custom products and solutions. As such, we already have affiliations with several academic institutions, but we are always willing to explore new opportunities for growth and discovery.


TBSI is now a part of the Harvard Bioscience family of companies. Harvard Bioscience (Nasdaq: HBIO) is a global developer, manufacturer, and marketer of a broad range of specialized products for life science research.

Simplicity in Electrophysiology

Our total product solutions are engineered for simplicity. We like to envision our products as being as plug-and-play as possible. Using industry standard connectors for interfacing to electrodes, internal base-station cable connections, and a USB output to your computer or software, a TBSI recording solution is exactly what you need to start collecting data quickly and easily.
