Axon Axoclamp 900A Microelectrode Amplifier Following the Axoclamp tradition, this amplifier model is a complete microelectrode current clamp and voltage clamp amplifier, useful for a wide range of intracellular microelectrode recording techniques. The Axoclamp™ 900A Microelectrode Amplifier represents the latest generation of our Axoclamp amplifier family. This model features many enhancements that improve its recording capability, make the amplifier easier to use, and help your experiments last longer.
The Axoclamp 900A Microelectrode Amplifier provides the following modes of operation:
I-Clamp: Current clamp using two independent bridge amplifiers for voltage measurements DCC: Discontinuous current clamp for accurate voltage measurements, even when the electrode resistance changes TEVC: High-compliance two-electrode voltage clamp for Xenopus oocytes and mammalian cells dSEVC: Discontinuous single-electrode voltage clamp for small cells with large currents HVIC: High-voltage current clamp for extracellular applications such as iontophoresis Excellent amplifier performance
The ±180 V output compliance used for TEVC and HVIC modes makes it possible to pass larger currents and ensures faster clamp speeds. TEVC and dSEVC modes both have wide AC voltage clamp gain ranges for excellent voltage control. When DC Restore is enabled, the DC voltage clamp gain is greater than 1,000,000, ensuring optimal voltage control for constant-voltage measurements. The new dSEVC design is more stable and twice as fast as before, providing an excellent alternative to standard continuous single-electrode voltage clamping.
Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.A Better Model for Parkinson's Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells Microreactor replaces animal testing. Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.Faster Drug Discovery? Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.
