Halo-5 Exit Tip

Interfaces the craniotomy and dictates insertion pattern for Halo-5 Microdrive.

Halo-5 Exit Tip features customizable exit patterns and “chimneys” for:

  • Smaller craniotomies
  • Groups of closely-spaced tetrodes
  • 4.5mm hole depth to aid vertical electrode travel and tetrode wire protection, allowing tetrode wires to protrude 3mm out of the polymicro tubing and reducing tissue damage near targeted recording sites.
