Penetrating Microelectrodes

Penetrating probes are suitable for implanting into cortex or deep brain structures, as well as for interfacing with spinal cord, heart or other tissues. Our technology offers a comprehensive design space capable of covering a 2-dimensional plane where electrode sites can be tailored to span cortical layers, or cortical columns of the brain. Alternatively, a volume of tissue can be covered by combining multiple 2-dimensional arrays. NeuroNexus offers a wide variety of penetrating probe designs to meet each and every unique requirement.

"Since NeuroNexus began fabricating probes with high reliability and reasonable costs, we virtually stopped using wire electrodes and monitor electrical activity with silicon probes. It is a one-way process: once one begins to record with silicon probes, he/she never goes back to wires."

Key Features:

  • Consistent results – NeuroNexus microelectrodes are produced with reliable mechanical, and geometric characteristics. This means fewer variables for you to manage.
  • A Toolbox of designs – We offer a huge variety of electrode array designs for different applications and/or brain structures. Think of it as selecting the right tool for your task – and if you need a custom design, we can make it for you.
  • Acute and chronic – Probes can be used successfully in both acute and chronic applications.
  • Connect to any system – Each microelectrode array is matched with a connector package to connect to a headstage. NeuroNexus collaborates with system manufacturers to ensure our probes connect seamlessly.
