Microwire Arrays - MWA
Short- and long-term neural recordings in rodent
Microwire Arrays are designed for both short- and long-term neural recordings in rodent, feline, bird and primate research.
Their recording reliability stems from a sound construction, which is also highly customizable. Tailoring options include: number of electrodes and rows, length and spacing, insulation and connectors, among others.
The Stainless Steel or Platinum/Iridium wires are individually cut to length and Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) ensures the stable arrangement of the wires while advanced into the target tissue. PEG may be easily washed-off with saline during the insertion process. Such approach allows to researcher for effective deep brain penetration.
