We provide this setup in two configurations:
1. In Vivo Voltammetry Basic Setup has been designed for fast scan cyclic voltammetry in anesthetized animals, slices, cells or organs.
It includes a head stage for 7 and 32 micron carbon fiber working electrodes, a small desktop box (FCV Analyzer) and a notebook computer with preinstalled software. Associated software bundle includes two programs – one for acquisition of the data and stimulation and the other for analysis. The main unit controlled by Invilog’s software provides also programmable pulse stimulator for mono or bipolar electrical stimulation (0±10 volts) or for triggering of other events (e.g. optical stimulation, perfusion etc.) synchronously with fast cyclic voltammetry measurements. For electrical stimulation you may use your own stimulus isolation unit (SIU) or obtain one, a very low noise, battery operated SIU from us.
2. In Vivo Voltammetry Complete Setup (figure on the left panel) lets you to perform all measurements mentioned above plus registration of the dopamine transients in freely moving animals.
Additional components of the Complete Setup include micro head stage, slip-ring (commutator) and multi-axis counter-balanced lever. These components permit recording of spontaneous dopamine transients with chronically implanted sensors, and also serve for electrical (also chemical or optical) stimulation in freely moving animals.
Invilog In Vivo Voltammetry Setup is complemented by calibrated carbon fiber working electrodes in glass insulation (sensors) for acute experiments, miniature chronically implanted sensors, stimulating and reference electrodes, and our 16 hours training via videoconferencing.
Therefore, everything you will ever need for in vivo voltammetry you will find at Invilog.
Several fragments of the program for analysis of the results are shown below.
