The HE type holders are designed to fit older Dagan, Warner, or WPI amplifiers and have a 2 mm pin or a 2 mm jack to connect the headstage.
These electrode holders are available with a replaceable Ag wire (must be chloridinated before use) or a 2 mm × 2 mm Ag-AgCl pellet. Pipette seals are also replaceable and adjustable. These holders are available without or with 2 mm suction port, straight, 90° or 45° (second suction port upon request). You can get 45° holders with handle.
The HB type holders fit headstages with BNC connector. They are straight and are equipped without or with 2 mm suction port. You can choose between a replaceable Ag wire (must be chloridinated before use) or a 2 mm × 2 mm Ag-AgCl pellet. Pipette seals are also replaceable and adjustable.
The HU type holders are made for Axon U headstages. The HL1 and HL2* types fit older Axon headstages.
All electrode holders are made of polycarbonate (HB types of Teflon upon request). The holders can fit glass with O.D. (mm): 1.0; 1.2; 1.5, or 2.0 (x.x please specify when ordering).
