Recording Chamber Systems

Our chamber systems are classified into three types (Tangential, Tangential Legged and Form Fitting), come in three sizes (Small, Medium, Large, and are available in two materials (Titanium or Plastic).

The Tangential chambers are designed to fit within a craniotomy and include a replaceable silicone membrane that provides a water tight seal above the brain.

The Tangential Legged versions are available to provide a bone cement free mounting option.

The Form Fitting chambers are custom designed based on MRI data to achieve a precise fit and adequately sample a specific brain region.  The chamber sits on top of the skull and is mounted with bone cement.  In addition, a form fitting plug is designed to contour to the inside surface of the skull and is the same shape as the bottom surface of the microdrive.

All of the chambers are designed to securely hold a specific microdrive.  All of the chambers are reusable.  The titanium chambers are more durable, whereas the plastic chambers are MRI compatible.

The part numbers are designated RC for Recording Chamber, followed by the type (T, TL, F), size (S, M, L), and material (Ti or P).
