Blackrock Microsystems MicroFlex Array

19:00 EST 6 Nov 2018 | Australian Life Scientist

The MicroFlex Array from Blackrock Microsystems is a flexible, polyimide-based multi-electrode array for acute and chronic preparations. The array is optimised for isolated single-unit, multi-unit and local field potential recordings. The flexible nature of the electrodes mitigates against tissue damage and is designed to ensure that the implantation process is seamless. The array is suitable for both small and large animals and the implantation process is gentle for the neural tissue.

The array’s size and flexibility allow for a minimally invasive implantation and an enhanced electrode lifetime. The unit can be implanted through the dura mater with the help of an inserter needle, avoiding the necessity to make large craniotomies or open the dura during implantation. This insertion mechanism can be placed in any depth, including the hippocampus.

The array is compatible with Omnetics connectors (standard or Ni-free for MRI applications), 1024 Ch LGA with standard-sized pedestal and Standard Cereport pedestal (with Female Molex connectors).
