Axion Maestro MEA

Axion Biosystems developed the first neural interfacing technology that can simultaneously stimulate and record electrophysiological tissue response. The Multi-Electrode Array (MEA) system integrates bioscience, sophisticated electrical and mechanical engineering, and low cost manufacturing techniques to provide a refined, coherent product.

Function designed the mechanical systems of Axion’s Maestro MEA product. Function developed a combination elevator and clamping mechanism which draws the “micro-plate” into the device and connects 784 electrical contacts. We collaborated with Axion’s ID partner to achieve aggressive appearance and ergonomic goals. The design took Axion’s research technology to a new level of refinement.
