Rigid stainless steel support tube facilitates precise insertion
Flexible polyimide cable minimizes overall probe weight and size
10 mm silicon probe minimizes tissue displacement while providing high-resolution recording

The Chronic Vector Array™ enables access to deep brain structures (> 10 mm deep) during chronic applications.

Chronic Vector Arrays™ can be configured with implantable lengths from 30 – 55 mm. Please factor in implantation hardware (clamps, etc.) when configuring your probe.
