Single-cell Opto-electric Probe Tips
A Single-cell Recording Opto-electric Probe Tip is a piece of dual core optical fiber with a 500 µm optical core and a 250 µm hollow core for electrolyte filling with one end pulled and cut to a 10 µm diameter tip as illustrated above. The probe tip is simply inserted into dedicated Single-cell Recording Opto-electric Probe Holder. A black coating can be added to minimize the light output/input in the shoulder of the tapered part of the probe.Notes:
The Single-cell Recording Opto-electric Probes are perfectly suited for in vivo single-cell electrophysiological recordings, optogenetic stimulation and photometry monitoring.
