Plexon Electrodes, Probes and Arrays

Plexon offers a suite of customizable specialty electrodes, probes and micro electrode arrays for various research needs. Many of our probes offer the combination of both neural stimulation and recording. Some of our most popular and innovative solutions are listed below. If you do not see what you need, contact your Plexon Sales Engineer about it. We simply may not have featured it here.

Plexon Inc is excited to announce a partnership with Modular Bionics™ Inc. to offer the N-Form® for research applications. The N-Form® array is a customizable, chronic, 3D micro electrode array for use in long-term recording experiments. The electrodes are made of platinum/iridium material. This microelectrode array is capable of recording up to 100 channels.

 

 

 


Penetrating cortical probes are fabricated with a shape memory polymer, which remain rigid in the air, like traditional silicon arrays, but become flexible and elastic after prolonged exposure to the brain. This neural electrode is used for chronic recordings.

 

 


Plexon’s very popular and robust, multi-use, multi-site linear electrode most often used for acute studies with larger animals such as primates.  The U-Probe is capable of single electrode, stereotrode, and tetrode configurations. Fluid capillaries and optic fibers can be placed anywhere on this probe.

 

 

 

 

 


The newest addition to the Plexon probe family– a multi-use, multi-site linear electrode with a solid stainless steel tip. This new design provides researchers with a more robust tip option.  The S-Probe is capable of single electrode, stereotrode, and tetrode configurations. Fluid capillaries and optic fibers can be placed anywhere on this probe.

 

 

 

 

 


Plexon’s second generation robust, multi-use, multi-site linear electrode. This multi electrode probe features a conical-shaped tip for both ease of penetration and reduction of trauma to the brain upon entry. The tapered tip of the V-Probe permits recording site to be closer to tip of probe.

 

 

 

 


A chronic, linear probe designed to span cortical layers running parallel to the surface of the brain, effective for both field potential and single unit recordings.
