Tethered Mouse FSCV System for in vivo studies.
Pinnacle’s robust, turn-key tethered mouse FSCV (FAST SCAN CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRY) SYSTEM is designed to simplify the measurement of catecholamines (i.e., dopamine, norepinephrine, etc.) and other electroactive analytes such as adenosine. It functions by rapidly cycling a voltage across an implanted carbon fiber sensor and measuring the resultant current. Both the tethered system for mice and rats and the wireless system for rats have built-in support for controlling an external stimulus. The system ships with Pinnacle’s FSCV software.
How It Works
Changes in analyte concentration are detected by rapidly cycling a voltage across an implanted carbon fiber sensor and measuring the resultant current. Pinnacle’s FSCV system can measure spontaneous sub-second neurotransmitter release while conducting detailed behavioral studies. Both the wireless and tethered systems scan up to 1,000 V/s in a user-selectable range spanning -0.6 to +1.5 V. All systems have built-in support for controlling an external stimulus.
- Voltage Span: -0.6 V to +1.5 V
- Max scan rate: 1,000 V/s
- Max sweeps/second: 10
- Max points/sweep: 1,000
