Welcome to Micro-Electrode Array Technology

Micro-Electrode Arrays

Micro-Electrode Arrays (MEA) or MEA biochips are devices comprising micro-fabricated metal electrodes that allow the direct measurement of electrical activity from biological brain and/or heart tissue, i.e. from neurons and cardiomyocytes. The large number of electrodes per well enables the detailed study of network and signal propagation characteristics within tissue or dissociated cell cultures.

We provide unique 3D tip-shaped MEA biochips best suited for monitoring of acute tissue slice preparations.

Typical single and multi-well MEA biochips

Please visit « MEA Products » to find out more about our low noise MEA products as well as all our available MEA electrode configurations, including our indium-tin oxide (ITO) based transparent electrode material devices.


MEA biochips are used to produce in vitro models of the central nervous system or heart preparations. They are employed in basic neurosciences research applications, drug discovery, as well as for evaluation of effects and toxicity of compounds on tissue and cell cultures.
