Visit us at booths 1366 & 1367 a the coming SFN 2015 meeting in Chicago

The annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience is approaching and we’re looking forward to seeing you in Chicago.

A lot has happened here at Sensapex since last years SFN. We are proud to present two major advancements in our offering: new micromanipulator products that define the new state of art for the performance in demanding applications and complete electrophysiology workstations with integrated control through Prior Scientific and Olympus co-operation (incl. stage & manipulator tracking feature).

Please visit us at booths 1366 & 1367 where we look forward to showing you what’s new in the world of micromanipulation, and share some of our Finnish chocolate and an espresso! As always, we will be having a prize drawing for an item of cutting-edge technology; this time, latest GoPro action camera that also packs great performance in small package.

Dr. Liming He joined Sensapex as Applications Specialist

Dr. Liming He from the National Institutes of Health has joined the Sensapex team as Applications Specialist.

Liming comes from the lab of Dr. Ling-Gang Wu where she has been perfecting simultaneous pre- and post-synaptic patch clamp recording in the Calyx of Held, and developed a novel technique, cell-attached capacitance measurement, at the release face of nerve terminals. Novelty of these technically challenging experiments and significance of the findings led to two high profile publications (Nature 2006: Nov 2, 444(7115):102-5 & Nature: 2009 May 7, 459(7243):93-7). She is also an author in several other high impact publications where demanding electrophysiology has played central role.

We are proud and excited to have Liming on our team: based in the Washington DC area, she will be primarily supporting our current and prospective customers in the Americas and can be reached at Liming.He@nullSensapex.com and +1(240)-308-4389.

Precise microinjections with Sensapex micromanipulator

New application sheet for in vivo microinjections now available in support pages.

Microinjections to living specimen require precise control of microinjector movement to avoid damaging the specimen. The new application sheet demonstrates the use of Sensapex micromanipulator to control the movement of microinjector tip accurately within brain vasculature. The stability and accuracy of Sensapex micromanipulator allowed performing accurate, stabile and repetitive injections in the sub-microliter range without damaging the vasculature.
