BV-10

Microelectrode Beveler

  SUTTER INSTRUMENT  

 

 

 

 

The BV-10 offers precision beveling of micropipette tips between 0.1 and 50µm.  The unique abrasive plate  drive system is vibration free for greater control of the beveling process.

Intracellular recording electrodes can benefit from beveling because of 1) a reduction in the tip diameter by creation of the sharp  point on the electrode, and  2) a lowered electrical resistance of the electrode due to the larger cross sectional area of the lumen.  This greatly facilitates penetrating and holding very small or difficult  cells.  Microinjection needles also benefit from beveling by promoting entry into cells with minimal damage while at the same time enhancing the flow of material through the needle.
