Amplifier for intracellular measurements

Amplifier for intracellular measurementsAmplifier for intracellular measurements

The amplifier is primarily suitable for the examination of the heart cells, but it can also be used for intracellular measurement of other organs (e.g.: spinal cord, brain, etc.). The amplifier is characterized by large input resistance (1012Ώ) with a low noise capacity and zero level stability. To achieve these favourable parameters we have chosen linear amplifier solution with reference artificial ground solution. The services of the amplifier (capacity compensation, resistance measurement, DC electrode contact potential cancellation) are controlled by the fixed resistance (1Ώ) reference artificial ground.

The amplifier consists of two units; the" INTE" large input resistance pre-amplifier, which can be directly connected with the electrode sleeve (types: WPI, Harvard, Clark etc.) , and the end-amplifier, which includes the previously described circuit elements and provides the connection to data visualizing, storing and evaluating hardware/software systems.
