Nerve Cuff Electrodes

Introduction

Microprobes for Life Science Nerve Cuff Electrodes are designed for reliable recording and/or stimulation of peripheral nerves. Our cuffs are suitable for both acute use and chronic implantation, and are available in a large variety of lengths and diameters to best fit the anatomy of your target nerve.

Electrode contact spacing and layout within the cuffs is fully customizable, and arrangement options include clustered, multi-polar, or concentric configurations.

Characteristics

  • For both acute and chronic experiments.
  • 1 - 24 electrode sites.
  • Broad range of available inner diameters, from 5 mm down to as small as 56 µm.
  • Concentric configurations, featuring multiple independently-addressable contacts per ring.
  • Customizable electrode arrangements, including concentric and extra wide contact options.
  • Adaptable to interface with any acquisition or stimulation system of your choice.
  • Suitable for rodent, large animal, and non-human primate.
  • All cuffs feature biocompatible and chronically stable materials suitable for long term (multiple month to multiple year) implantation.
