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
