About us

Neuronelektrode team

Neuronelektród Kft a Hungary based, family owned company has served Hungarian and international researchers since 2005 as designer and manufacturer of microelectrodes for neural science. Our team has extensive expertise of micromechanical and electrical engineering. The team has been committed to delivering innovative, customizable specialty electrodes for the highest requirements of various research needs. Neuronelektród serves a valuable role in the Neurotechnology market and is a trusted supplier of critical technology to some of the most prestigious neuroscience research labs from around the world, including the MIT, NIH, Stanford University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, in Europe the Max Planck Institute, Oxford University, University College London, KU Leuven, University of Amsterdam, in Japan the Tokyo University of Science, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, etc.

Many of our probes offer the combination of both neural recording and stimulation. Flexibility in the manufacturing process allows for different electrode site arrangements and spacing, as well as optional fluid delivery channels for precise drug delivery or fiber optic lines for optogenetic stimulation intermixed within the recording sites.  The precise linear arrangement of the electrode sites enables current source density analysis of the field potential signals as recorded from laminar neural structures. We are continuously improving the electrode technology and broadening the product line. Over 3700 electrodes have been sold around the world to the labs of neuroscience community. We are open to manufacturing "custom-built" probes based on your requirements. If you do not see what you need or any other questions may have please contact us by email at info@neuronelektrod.com.

In Hungary we have been in close cooperation with the leading universities and research institutes e.g.: Hungarian Academy of Sciences Institute of Experimental Medicine, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology, Research Centre for Natural Sciences, Eötvös Loránd University Dept. of Physiology and Neurobiology, University of Szeged, University of Pécs.

Please be informed that Plexon Inc. from Dallas, Texas is the sole and exclusive representing agent worldwide, excluding Hungary for the distribution of our U-Probes, V-Probes, S-Probes, K-probes and standard Thumbtack Probes with polyimide-epoxy composite shaft. Find detailed information about these probes also on Plexon website https://plexon.com/products/plexon-electrodes-probes-and-arrays/. If you intend to purchase any of these probes please contact a Plexon Sales Engineer by email at info@plexon.com.

In collaboration with Plexon Inc. we have been participating as exhibitors at the Plexon booth at several Neuroscience Conferences, like the bi-annual FENS Conferences in Barcelona, Milan, Copenhagen, Berlin, at SfN Conferences in San Diego, Chicago and Washington and also at IBRO World Congresses in Rio de Janeiro and in Daegu, Korea.

Mr. László Papp, the managing director and founder of Neuronelektród Kft is the lead design engineer of the company and well known in the world of brain researchers utilizing neural electrodes. Mr. Papp continues to lead Neuronelektród Kft with the same energy and vision that fueled his whole career. He earned his Masters of Science degree in Electrical Engineering at the Budapest University of Technology, Faculty of Electrical Engineering in 1971. During his career he designed among others fetal ECG, newborn respirator to be used in incubator, etc. He has over 30 years' experience with designing neural electrodes for basic neuroscience research mainly for use in animal science.

He maintains memberships for over 25 years in such organizations as the Hungarian Neuroscience Society and the Neumann János Computer-science Society.
