MICROELECTRODE ARRAYS

Multi Electrode Array

This unique Multielectrode Array provides endless design alternatives for recording and stimulation protocols.

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

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Up to 64 penetrating microelecrodes per array for short-and long-term recording/stimulation.
  • Custom microelectrode length between 1-40 mm, including different length within an array.
  • Custom spacing between electrodes is in the range of 0.1 - 1mm
  • Custom microelectrode impedance for individual electrodes ranges between 10 kΩ - 5 MΩ.
  • Custom electrode tip diameter between 1 - 6 µm.
  • Custom reference and ground electrodes according to the researcher’s requirements.
  • Optionally integrated fiber optic and/or drug delivery cannula.
  • Parylene-C electrode insulation.
  • Pure Iridium is suggested for chronic stimulation studies.
  • Optional polyimide tubing for additional stiffness.

CUSTOMERS FEEDBACK

I have been a Microprobes customer for 3 and a half years and counting. MicroProbes’ micro-electrode arrays (MEA’s) have been an invaluable tool for my research. I study a transient cortical cell population where sensory responses are often difficult to find.
