Intracellular Microelectrode
Intracellular Electrode
  •  Permanent Storage of 80 programs
  • One- or two-staged pulling programs, in which all variables (see below) can be set independently for each stage or the option of repeating the first stage
  • No risk of breaking thin-walled capillary glass in the glass holders
  • Choice of capillary glass outer diameter of 1 to 2 mm.
  • Free choice and absolute reproducibility of all characteristics
  • Suitable for pulling injection and suction pipettes
  • Suitable for pulling intracellular electrodes with a tip diameter down to 0.2 µm and a resistance up to 100 MΩ
  • Fast heater retraction to avoid the need for air-jet cooling
  • Exceptionally low friction and inertia thanks to the unique pulling system
  • Automatic compensation for variations in the thickness of the glass
  • Suitable for pulling patch-clamp pipettes with precisely defined tip (usually between 1 and 80 µm)
  • The puller may fire-polish patch clamp pipettes
  • It can be used to fabricate patch-micropipettes well suitable for reaching gigaseals
  • A high weight of 29 kg ensures a firm stand and therefore accurate results

  • Precise shape and position of the filament has, compared to other pullers, less influence on the tip size and shape of the electrode
  • The excellent reproducibility of electrode tip characteristics allows producing the electrode as required, immediately before use
  • The mechanism doesn't need periodical calibration

Adjustable Variables

  • Distance of pull (longitudinal)
  • Pulling force (time-controlled program)
  • Pulling force (distance-controlled program)
  • Time- or distance controlled heating
  • Heating power radiated by the filament
