Amplicoat is a conductive polymer coating technology developed internally at Heraeus Medevio enabling the miniaturization of electrodes without sacrificing signal quality.

Leverage this unique technology for supply chain simplification, quicker market entry, and efficient long-term manufacturing.


Amplicoat® improves the interface between electrodes and human tissue. Additional benefits include:

  • Low electrode impedance
  • High charge injection capabilities
  • Enabling miniaturization
  • Biocompatible polymeric interface
  • Low temperature process
  • Simplified manufacturing

When compared to other commonly used coatings, Amplicoat enables better stimulation and sensing data in smaller electrodes, as shown in the graphs below.

With a long history in development and manufacturing of electrodes and precious metal components and over 170 years of materials science expertise, we offer a wide array of coating technologies to improve electrode performance, with the expertise to advise on the best techology for your project and tailor adhesion and chemistry to fit your unique application.


Heraeus Medevio's electro-conductive polymer coatings can be applied to a variety of medical electrode materials, including:

  • Platinum
  • MP35N®
  • Iridium
  • Gold
  • Titanium
  • Tungsten
  • Stainless Steel
  • Nitinol
  • Silicon

Amplicoat® is deposited via electrodeposition. This quick, safe, and easy process can accommodate components or assemblies.
