The latest generation of the popular precision current source, designed at M.I.T. for the iontophoresis of neural transport tracers such as horseradish peroxidase (HRP) or tritiated amino acids into neural tissue, is now available from Stoelting.
3000 Volt Compliance Voltage
The Midgard™ features a high compliance voltage (3000 V) for injections from very small, or partially-clogged, pipette tips. The output current level can be regulated to +/- 0.5%, from 0.0 to 200 MegOhms.
Pulsed or Continuous Output
Pulsed output helps avoid clogging or polarization of the tip of the pipette. The researcher may select pulsed or continuous current with a switch. The pulsed on/off times can be varied from 0.5 to 24 seconds.
Many researchers have requested external timing control for lab automation applications. The Midgard™ can be gated through a headphone jack, on the rear panel, by any laboratory logic pulse generator. The output current is continuous whenever the gating jack is logic high, off when it is logic low.
A touchpad switch allows reversing polarity. This is useful when using a retaining current to hold the pipette contents in the pipette during entry into the brain.
