ZIF-Clip® Based Electrodes

All of TDT’s electrodes are made to user specifications. We build custom configurations up to 64 channels with our ZIF-Clip® arrays and employ laser-cut manufacturing for custom array lengths.  Each wire is individually cut to length, so you can specify an array profile that matches the geometry of your target tissue.

TDT microwires are made with polyimide-insulated tungsten for excellent recording characteristics and easy insertion.   The notched ZIF-Clip® connector ensures correct insertion into the headstage.
