Accessories for drive implants
To make an implant complete, headgear protects the microdrives from physical damage and can shield electrical noise.
We offer several types of headgear for rats and mice. Our multipurpose crown is a 3D printed protective scaffold that is implanted around a microdrive. It is flexible, yet sturdy, to protect the implant from physical damage. In addition, it features a Faraday cage and connector holder to mechanically decouple the implanted probes from the connector to the tether cable.
It optionally comes with attachments for head fixation (if you need that, get in touch!)
The Buzsaki lab mouse cap and rat cap are open-source, 3D printed headgear systems. They expose the largest part of the skull and therefore allow flexible placement of multiple microdrives.
