Unipolar and Concentric Bipolar Needle Electrodes

Use these stainless steel needle electrodes for stimulation or recording in animal subjects and tissue preparations.

EL450 37 mm x 26g unipolar needle electrode and EL451 25 mm x 30g concentric bipolar electrode
  • Disposable PTFE coated stainless steel needle electrodes have a super-flexible PVC insulated leadwire ending with a standard touch proof connector.
  • Teflon coated needle electrodes are fully insulated, with a clear Teflon overcoat, except for the conductive needle tip. The coating prevents the needle from making contact with the subject except at the very tip of the needle, which is exposed.
  • For applications that require better contact between the electrode and the subject to record a good signal, abrade the needle to remove the Teflon coating.

EL452 12 mm x 28g unipolar needle electrode

  • Disposable uncoated stainless steel ground reference needle electrodes have a super-flexible PVC insulated leadwire ending with a standard touch proof connector.
See Details for suggested use.

 Suggested use:
  • When recording from a single site (e.g., studies of individual muscle fibers), use one EL451 electrode plus one EL452 ground electrode.
  • For general-purpose recording (e.g., ECG), use a pair of EL450 or EL452 electrodes, plus one EL452 ground electrode.
  • For stimulation, use a pair of EL450 or EL452 electrodes.

Interface Notes

Research System Users: CBL201 is required for connection to older model 100A/100B-series amplifiers or STMISOA/B.

Education System Users: Use SS1LA, BSLCBL8, or BSLCBL9 to interface the MP3X data acquisition unit.

How to Add NIRS Labs for Brain Function and Muscle Oxygenation

With Biopac Student Lab, students learn by doing and use near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) sensors to record and analyze data displaying changes in deoxygenated (Hb) and oxygenated (HbO2) hemoglobin during cognitive and neuromuscular.
Learn what fNIRS can add to your physiology lab:
– Principles of optical brain imaging
– Lessons on prefrontal cortex imaging and muscle oxygenation
– Demonstration examining Hb and HbO2 during BP occlusion
– Combining fNIRS curriculum with EMG, EDA, EEG, ECG, SpO2, and Respiration to examine the relationship between brain oxygenation and other physiological signals
– Use cases for both teaching and research
