Vector Array

Vector Array™

The Vector Array™ is a neural probe design optimized for large animal deep brain applications (e.g. non-human primate, porcine, etc.). The probe design is completely overhauled to fully take advantage of our industry-leading silicon multichannel microelectrode technology.

Vector Web4

The distal end of the Vector Array™ interfacing with the target region is a customizable NeuroNexus silicon microelectrode array, which has a maximum width of 175 µm and narrows to 20 µm at the tip site for the Edge design, and 75 µm for the Poly2 design. The proximal body of the Vector Array™ is a rigid metal tube (Support Body). This hybrid assembly combines a high-quality, proven neural interface at the critical region while providing the elongated probe system with a robust body.
