NeuroCap System for Rodents – IP 1640

FIU scientists have created a surgical mounting device for the precise implantation of chronic, or permanent, implants into the rodent brain. The device is shaped to align to reliable landmarks on the skull in order to operate in 3D coordinates and allow rapid surgical implantation of drug delivery tubes and electrodes for brain stimulation and recording. This device eliminates the need for costly micromanipulator systems used with rodent stereotaxic devices, decreases surgical time, and increases reliability across procedures. We are looking for a business partner to further develop and commercialize NeuroCap System for Rodents as a potentially viable economical alternative to implement in the most common surgical approach in preclinical studies with rodent models.
