The high density of our HD-MEA chips can be exploited in different ways to gather as much information as never before from large networks of cultured neurons. Experimenters can discriminate the activity of spontaneous and chemically induced spatiotemporal patterns, follow the network response to stimuli and even study complex network topologies, just to make few examples.
Both field potentials and multiunit activities can be sensed with unprecedented spatiotemporal details on our HD-MEAs. Moreover the large field of view of our MEAs enables assays on large tissue portions, such as in rat cortico-hippocampal slices, to be carried out.
Explanted retinas are an ideal biological preparation to be investigated with our HD-MEAs thanks to their large-scale sensing area (up to 5.12 x 5.12 mm2) that come together with temporal resolutions outperforming those of imaging techniques.
