Complete TEVC Package

Complete TEVC Package

  • No microscope needed
  • Single and dual TEVC systems available
  • Automated design automatically finds oocyte membrane

The Automated Two-Electrode Voltage Clamp Package combines the ChannelMAX automated manipulators with the Axon Instruments / Molecular Devices Axoclamp amplifier, Digidata DAQ and pCLAMP software for the ultimate oocyte recording rig. Just drop one or two oocytes into the included perfusion chamber and start recording! The optional perfusion system gives you automated control over pharmacology studies.

System includes:

Two or four HS-9A x10 headstages with electrode holders are included. When requesting a quote, please tell us if you would like to change to x1 or x0.1 headstages instead. These same manipulators can also be used for patch clamping.
