Electrodes Blackrock - EPHYS - electrode solution that will enable them to perform long-term chronic cortical recording and stimulation

Tuesday, 31 de December de 2019

When neuroscience researchers are looking for an electrode solution that will enable them to perform long-term chronic cortical recording and stimulation, they will most likely end up choosing the Utah Array.

The Utah Array was developed in the 1990s and has been the industry standard ever since. The Utah Array provides industry-leading signal quality and is the optimal choice for large data volume neural recordings. It has been used in numerous studies on topics varying from cortical applications as well as peripheral applications. Among the most prominent publications are Collinger’s 2013 research in The Lancet, Hochberg’s 2012 piece in Nature, as well as Normann’s 2007 work in Nature Clinical Practice Neurology—to name a few.

Today, the Utah Array is at the center of neuroscience research around the world. In the last 20 years, Blackrock has provided around 500 labs with various Utah Arrays.

Our customers make use of the Utah Array in a variety of experiment types:

  • Single-unit recording
  • Stimulation
  • Multiple-unit recording
  • Local field potential

The Utah Array’s fixed geometry has advantages such as:

  • Standardized fabrication process
  • Repeatability in the electrodes’ mechanical and electrical performance
