impedance measurement on multielectrode arrays with

the MEArack

Well established in electro-physiological research the standard form factor multielectrode arrays (MEAs) are one of the go-to standards when it comes to impedance measurements on cell cultures.

With the Sciospec MEArack you get a simple and proven solution for tackling these measurements without any awkward self made cabling setups, labor intensive manual channel switching or complicated third party multiplexer integrations on top of a home cooked chip adapter... With the ExtensionPort system the MEArack just plugs into compatible impedance analyzers like the ISX-3 and you´re good to go - it´s that easy.


key facts

  • adapter for multi-electrode-arrays (MEAs) and other sensors-/biochips
  • 64-channel analog multiplexer
  • 60 spring-loaded gold electrode contacts
  • layout fitting broad range of different alredy available chips
  • optional custom chip development
  • small form factor, low profile
  • bottom and top windows for use in combination with microscopic and other optical equipment
  • easy setup through extension port
  • fully integrated graphical user-interface in Sciospec software

With the ExtensionPort system the MEArack just plugs into compatible impedance analyzers like the ISX-3 and you´re good to go - it´s that easy.

sensor and chip types

  • industry standard electrodes/sensors available from several manufacturers
  • tons of electrode geometries and materials to choose from
  • custom made electrode structures to perfectly fit your needs
  • optional integration of fluidic handling or temperature control

Just as important as the correct instrument is the sensor type you use. The MEArack is compatible with industry standard chips available from several manufacturers world wide. Typical sensor geometries range from simple spot electrodes, over interdigitated electrodes (IDEs) up to highly specialized electrodes for specific cell cultures and experiment types.

Need something more tailored towards your needs? We can help you design and manufacture your own sensor structures specifically targeting your application. Integration of fluidic handling and temperature control is also available.

ExtensionPort System

For flexible extension of its application possibilities application specific frontends and adapters can be connected to many of our instruments through the ExtensionPort system. Interface and specifications for the ExtensionPort are fully user accessible dramatically simplifying customer`s developments for and with systems like the ISX-3, ISX-3mini or ISX-5. The connector carries measurement signals for 2,3 and 4-electrode configuration, supply rails and digital IOs, which can optionally be configured as serial interfaces (I2C, UART).
