  1. Using WPI's PUL-1000 Micropipette Puller
    March 06, 2015
    World Precision Instruments' PUL-1000 is a microprocessor controlled, four-stage, horizontal puller for making glass micropipettes or microelectrodes used in intracellular recording, microperfusion and microinjection. It offers programmable sequences of up to four steps with complete control over the heating, force, movement and cooling time. This allows graduated cycles for a variety of applications. PUL-1000 can produce pipettes with tip diameters from less than 0.1µm to 10+ µm.  More Info

  10. 900A Micropressure System from WPI
    May 01, 2014
    The 900A is designed to measure hydrostatic pressure in small vessels and cells. Pressure ranges of -200 to +400 millimeters of mercury can be measured with stability and accuracy. The system's sensing element is an electrolyte-filled glass microelectrode with a tip diameter range of 2 to 5 microns. Pressures of electrolyte solutions are measured by maintaining a salt concentration gradient at the tip of the sensing electrode in dynamic equilibrium by applying an equal air pressure inside the microelectrode. The pressure reading appears on the front panel display and via the BNC recorder output. Because the piezo electric pressure controller uses external pressure and vacuum sources, pressures lower than -200 to greater than +400 mm Hg can be quickly and accurately measured at the microelectrode tip.
