Pre-implantation electrochemical characterization of a Parylene C sheath microelectrode array probe

Pre-implantation electrochemical characterization of a Parylene C sheath microelectrode array probe

Conference Proceedings 2012: 5126-5129

We present the preliminary electrochemical characterization of 3D Parylene C sheath microelectrode array probes towards realizing reliable chronic neuroprosthetic recordings. Electrochemical techniques were used to verify electrode integrity after our novel post-fabrication thermoforming process was applied to flat surface micromachined structures to achieve a hollow sheath probe shape. Characterization of subsequent neurotrophic coatings was performed and accelerated life testing was used to simulate six months in vivo. Prior to probe implantation, crosstalk was measured and electrode surface properties were evaluated through the use of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
