N-Form® Array Insertion Tool

Plexon Inc and Modular Bionics™ Inc. have partnered to offer the N-Form®, a customizable 3D multi-electrode array for chronic in vivo electrophysiology. The N-Form array combines features of the Utah array and linear arrays, such as the Plexon V-Probe, for chronic, 3D volumetric recordings.

The customizable N-Form® design allows for targeting large volumes of neurons across layers and columns of cortex.  Each N-Form® array has a hook on the backplate that enables an insertion tool to be attached.  This insertion tool is then secured in a Microdrive / Inserter and lowered into the brain. The insertion tool was designed to be easily adaptable to many different types of Microdrives / Inserters.
