Introducing Trident Silicon Neural Probes

Research Tools for Monitoring and Controlling the Nervous System

-Gaithersburg, MD— October 5, 2019— Microprobes for Life Science, in partnership with Bio-Signal Technologies, is proud to announce – Trident probes – a new line of silicon-based linear arrays for high-resolution monitoring of brain electrical activity at multiple depths. The arrays are optimized for simultaneous extracellular recordings of single- and multiple-units and local field potentials from shallow and deep neural structures. Available in a variety of popular geometries and configurations suited for anesthetized, head-fixed, or freely-behaving animals, Trident probes can also be built to match the form-factors and connector options of competing probes allowing them to serve as drop-in replacements.

We will feature an ever-expanding catalog of design options, including integration of optical (for optogenetics) and fluid (for drug delivery) channels over the coming years. Contact us to learn how we can supply your laboratory with silicon probes that will generate the high-quality data you demand while optimizing your budget.
