Biomedical Electronics and Systems

Multielectrodes for biomedical systems

In-vitro multielectrode-based biomedical systems constitute an attractive platform for cellular diagnostics and research. With a special emphasis on electrogenic cells (neurons) they allow for the investigation of bioelectronic circuits and assemblies at cellular level. Our goal is to develop and apply novel electrode-based platform for neuroscience research and biotechnological application. Using high-channel count electrode arrays (i.e. CMOS-based MEAs) large datasets are recorded and analyzed using customized algorithms.

Neuroelectronic devices and interfacing

State-of-the art neuroprosthetics will be improved if bidirectional interfacing allows for rapid  adjustment of the therapeutic intervention. Towards such goal we aim for electrical recording and simultaneous stimulation at single cell scale using high-density electrode arrays and appropriate read-out schemes.


The ex vivo retina constitutes an attractive tissue for many biomedical applications. It can easily be interfaces to various electrode configuration and be stimulated over extended times to investigate basic questions in neuroscience and various disease models.
