The Vector Array™ is optimized for large animal deep brain applications, utilizing NeuroNexus silicon microelectrode technology with added length and strength. Choose the Vector Array™ for repeated acute use or chronic implantation recording in targets multiple centimeters deep in tissue.
Acute Vector ArraysTM
The Acute Vector ArrayTM is optimized for acute deep brain applications, utilizing NeuroNexus microelectrode technology to record and stimulate in high resolution in hard-to-reach structures.
Chronic Vector ArraysTM
The Chronic Vector ArrayTM enables access to deep brain structures (> 10 mm deep) during chronic applications. Request VC-series connector packages.
Chronic Vector ArraysTM can be configured with implantable lengths from 30 – 55 mm. Please factor in implantation hardware (clamps, etc.) when configuring your probe.
Opto Vector ArraysTM
Acute Vector Array™ can be configured with a 50µm- or 105µm-core optical fiber on the silicon shank. Request OV-series connector packages.
