Innovations in Electrophysiology

Research Projects

Here at MCS, we are involved in a variety of national and multinational Research Projects with the aim to develop new materials and technical procedures for the generation of innovative MEA products both for electrophysiology research and for (pre-)clinical use. Below you can find a list of our ongoing projects.
For more information on our research activities, please contact jmeents [at] multichannelsystems.com (Dr. Jannis Meents).

2020

The Moore4Medical project applies Moore’s law to biomedical research. The aim of the project is to develop open technology platforms for six emerging medical domains. MCS is involved in the development of active implantable devices using ultrasound technology and in Organ-on-chip development, where we are working on a “smart multiwell plate”.

2020

The Biomedical Technologies work package of the Graphene Flagship develops advanced tools for neuroscience research as well as next-generation medical neural interface devices towards clinical translation in three specific disease areas: 1) retinal (blindness); 2) cortical (epilepsy); 3) deep-structure (Parkinson’s).

2020

Ionic Neuromodulation For Epilepsy Treatment (IN-FET) tackles the visionary idea of altering neuronal firing and synaptic transmission by direct ionic actuation at the microscopic scale, while monitoring cell responses by arrays of nanoscale transistors.

2018

Neuromodulation of the peristalsis to support digestion. In the NEPTUN project, microimplants are being developed for patient-specific neuromodulation of the autonomic nervous system of the gastrointestinal tract.

2018

It is the ambition of POSITION-II project to enable innovation in Smart Catheters and Implants by the introduction of open technology platforms for: miniaturization, in-tip AD conversion, wireless communication, MEMS transducer technology and encapsulation.

2016

The goal of BrainCom is to develop high-density cortical implants for cognitive neuroscience and rehabilitation of speech using brain-computer interfaces.

2016

Three-dimensional electrophysiological and optogenetic systems and methods for studying cellular circuits in cell and tissue assemblies.
