Carbon fibers have outstanding mechanical and electrical properties and provide an excellent base electrode for electrophysiological, electrochemical or biosensor applications on a micrometer scale. As microelectrodes, they provide superior extracellular recordings similar the best tungsten electrodes.
How to pull multibarrel micropipettes
This video shows Kation’s Gravipull-3 micropipette puller at work. You can watch pulling of a multibarrel carbon fiber containing microelectrode. Our unique two-stage pull method allows production of long tapered microelectrodes for deep reaching in large-bodied species.
Products of Kation Scientific have been used in hundreds of studies that resulted in more than 300 papers published in high-quality journals. Here is a list of arbitrarily selected articles exemplifying the use of our microelectrodes and electrophysiology instruments.
