Array Inserter

Array Inserter


The Blackrock pneumatically-actuated inserter is a device for implanting high-density microelectrode arrays into brain and peripheral-nerve tissue. Its high-speed, momentum-impulse insertion mechanism facilitates complete array implantation with minimal tissue damage. Adjustable insertion speed and implantation depth allows researchers to optimize device settings for different electrode configurations and tissue preparations.

  • High-speed pneumatic insertion
  • Adjustable implantation depth
  • Minimal tissue insult
  • In vivo or in vitro preparations
  • Sterilizable
