Micro-electrode arrays

For high throughput, multi-modal cell interfacing

Our expertise 

Imec designs and fabricates breakthrough CMOS-based multi-electrode arrays for high-throughput, multi-modal cell interfacing. By introducing CMOS chip technology in multi electrode arrays, imec enables high-quality, high-throughput data acquisition for cell interaction and behavior. 

An example of an application based on imec's multi-electrode arrays is the brain-on-a-chip to decode brain diseases, demonstrated at Future Summits 2022.
