Our Setups

We do extracellular and patch clamp recordings using three different rigs. People who are new to the field might find it useful to see, which equipment can be used for these recording techniques. One should consider, however, that electrophysiological setups are steadily under construction, so that a list of the equipment used can be no more than a snapshot. The links to the manufacturers might help, if someone wants to install his own setup. This page focuses on the equipment we use. Other manufacturers can be found on the Links and Addresses page.
