3D Microelectrode Array for Optical and Electrical Probing of Electrogenic Cells

Technology #34513

Key Points

  • Cost effective fabrication using biocompatible material (3D printing, outside cleanroom)
  • Technology can be scaled appropriately for larger and customizable array configurations


The University of Central Florida invention describes the microfabrication and assembly of a three-dimensional microelectrode array (3D MEA) based on a glass-stainless steel platform. The technique involves the use of non-traditional “Makerspace Microfabrication” techniques, which allows cost effective fabrication of the device using biocompatible materials.
