ME Series: Electrical & Pressure Applications

Product Summary

Electrode holders designed for applying pressure or suction to an electrode or pipette while maintaining an electrical connection

  • Machined from high quality acrylic
  • Suitable for Intracellular and extracellular recording
  • Suitable for Microinjection
  • Suitable for Microiontophoresis
  • Supplied with interchangeable A, B, ML, and FL style port connectors
  • T style port connectors are compatible with PicospritzerĀ® made by General Valve

The ME Series electrode holders for electrical and pressure applications allow the application of pressure or vacuum while simultaneously applying an voltage or current to the interior of the electrode's capillary.

The pressure and electrical connections are positioned opposite to each other on the holder shaft allowing the handle to be axially mounted onto a micropositioner.

The screw-in pressure connectors on the universal holders are interchangeable to accommodate a variety of pressure/vacuum apparatus and the T style threaded holder is specifically designed to be used with Parker Hannifin's Picospritzer.
