Opto Microelectrode Array [Opto-MEA]
The Opto Microelectrode Array [Opto-MEA] has been designed to take on many different geometries and electrode/fiber optic layouts for a multitude of experimental protocols.

Originally designed for chronic use applications the MEAs are equally effective for acute studies as well.

The number of contacts, length of each, the impedance and distance between electrodes are all custom designed.

× From June 1st onward of 2017, the Tungsten option will no longer be available for MEAs. Note that this does not affect the availability of Tungsten for other products, such as Single Electrodes or Bipolar Electrodes.
