Narishige MF-830 microforge
The Narishige MF-830 microforge assists the process of patch clamping by using fire-polishing technology to polish the microelectrode tips. A powerful microscope (525× total magnification) is included for making electrodes with tips less than 2µm. Independent, easy-to-operate manipulators are provided for both heater and electrode. A fine movement unit on the side of the heater moves vertically to bring the heater closer to the tip even under high magnifications. The heater is made smaller so as not to get in the way and is turned ON/OFF with a foot switch. The electrode holder is in the form of a leaf spring, which is easy to detach/attach, and the narrower operating area facilitates ease of use.
All of the equipment we sell is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.
