The precision and advantages of microdrives can now be combined with our easy to connect/disconnect TDT ZIF-Clip® headstages. The TDT Electrode Microdrive systems are available in custom configurations up to 32 channels. The TDT Microdrive allows high resolution movement of the electrodes, guarantees a fixed and stable implantation that is comfortable for the animal.
The ability to move the electrodes post-surgery greatly extends the life of the implant. Moving the electrode can reverse the loss of single unit recordings and gives you the ability to correct position or even target new areas post-surgery.
Find new sensory regions in barrel cortex, new frequency tuning curves in auditory cortex, or new spatial regions in hippocampus after implantation.
- Microdrives comes with surgical implantation documentation.
- TDT microwires are made with polyimide-insulated tungsten for excellent recording characteristics and easy insertion.
Chronic recordings in awake
Extended recordings lasting
months or longer
The TDT ZIF-Clip® Microdrive was developed in Partnership with Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati.
