A simple to use, low cost intracellular amplifier and comes with a small, light weight headstage (1.1 cm in diameter x 5.6 cm long), weighing only 10 grams. The small size of the amplifier and its remote power supply offers the advantage of placing the amplifier near to the experimental setup, within a Faraday cage. The unit allows for extremely precise adjustments to suppress transients during membrane recordings. The DC balance control eliminates the need for an external bridge and provides a DC offset control of up to ±1 V. An internal square-wave generator supplies a 100 Hz current pulse to determine electrode resistance. The amplifier has an advanced capacitance "Ringer" control for clearing electrode tips and enhancing the membrane penetration of neurons.
