Electrophysiology: Where to Begin

If you’re wondering what to order for an Electrophysiology study, we can help.First, how many channels are you planning on working with? Our standards are: two, three or six. If you need any additional channels we offer custom options.

Here is a basic sample of an Electrophysiology system:


Electrodes:

Three standard sizes: .005”, .008” and .010”. The size of the animal determines which size you require.

Cables:

Double ended tether with two channel 305 plugs available with spring or mesh sheath. Spring/mesh are used to protect the cable from animals who chew on it. Spring is more durable but mesh covering is lighter. Both are made with stainless steel.

Commutator:

Two channel commutator available in two options: Double brush or single brush. Single brush has a lower torque which allows it to spin easier for smaller animals. Double brush is a standard size and is more durable due to two brushes.

Commutator Stimulator Cable:

Input cable used for stimulation. A standard cable is our 305 plug to a variety of options depending on your needs: 441 female touchproof, 491 banana plug, 340 male plug, SL/2 solder lugs or leave it open ended.
