Our flagship silicon probes are a reliable and reproducible substitute for wire bundles. Suitable for acute and chronic use, they interface with cortex or small animal deep brain structures, as well as the spinal cord, heart, or other tissues. Choose from the world’s largest catalog of probe designs to find the one best suited to your target region and analyses, then select the appropriate connector package to order a completely assembled probe.
“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.”
