Microwire Brush Arrays

Microwire Brush Array (MBA)

Introduction

The Microwire Brush Array  MBA  was developed in cooperation with Dr. David Leopold’s Laboratory at the National Institutes of Health. The design concept, which features a large number of microwires tightly bundled within a single Microfil tube, provides a unique approach for recording and/or stimulating small neural pools below the cortical surface. The Microwires are designed to separate and splay out as they are implanted.

The design concept allows a large variety of configurations to cater specifically to the researcher’s application and experimental protocol.

User Specify

  • Up to 96 individual microwires.
  • Multiple wires diameters may be specified within a single array.
  • Can be configured for either acute or chronic implantation.
  • May be re-used for acute applications.
  • Chronic designs feature a flexible silicone cable between the brush array and connector, allowing the array to move freely with the brain.
  • Brush Array designs are adaptable to a large number of connector types.
  • Overall length can be specified between 2.5 mm to 120 mm.
  • Shank diameter depends on the number and size of microwires selected.
