microelectrode

An electrode, with tip dimensions small enough (less than 1 m m) to allow non-destructive puncturing of the plasma membrane. This allows the intracellular recording of resting and action potentials, the measurement of intracellular ion and pH levels (using ion-selective electrodes), or microinjection. Microelectrodes are generally pulled from glass capillaries, and filled with conducting solutions of potassium chloride or potassium acetate to maximize conductivity near the tip. Electrical contact, if required, is usually made with a silver chloride-coated silver wire. ...

This article about application of microelectrodes in electrophysiology. For application in electroanalytical chemistry see ultramicroelectrode. A microelectrode is an electrode of very small size, used in electrophysiology for either recording of neural signals or electrical stimulation of nervous tissue. Initially, pulled glass pipette microelect...

microelectrode

Type: Term Pronunciation: mī′krō-ē-lek′trōd Definitions: 1. An electrode of very fine caliber consisting usually of a fine wire or a glass tube of capillary diameter (10 mcm-1 mm) drawn to a fine point and filled with saline or a metal such as gallium or indium (while melted); used in physiologic experiments to stimu...
