Electrophysiology

Electrophysiology Measurement SystemThe Electrophysiology Measurement System is located in the Integrated Nanomaterials Laboratory, room 2112 of the Environmental Research Building on the Boise State campus. It consists of the MultiClamp 700B amplifier and the Digidata 1550 digitizer. The MultiClamp 700B is a computer controlled microelectrode amplifier designed for patch voltage- or current- clamp measurements of single ion channels, whole-cell voltage- and current-clamp recordings, intracellular electrode recordings, extracellular field potential recordings in an ion channel, neuroscience, nanopore and voltammetry studies. It is interfaced with a Digidata 1550 low-noise, high-resolution 16-bit data acquisition system for digitizing electrophysiology recordings. The two systems are controlled via pCLAMP 10.4 electrophysiology data acquisition & analysis software.  If you would like more information regarding this equipment, please contact Dr. David Estrada, Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering at daveestrada@boisestate.edu or (208) 426-5693.
