Carbon fiber electrodes (CFEs) are used in conjunction with Pinnacle’s tethered and wireless recording systems. CFEs are used to measure the presence of biogenic amines (e.g. dopamine) in the brain using fixed potential amperometry or fast scan cyclic voltammetry. Pinnacle CFEs are 34 microns in diameter and 0.5 mm in length. Pinnacle's 7002 CFE series is compatible with BASi guide cannula (7030). All Pinnacle CFEs require an Ag/AgCl reference electrode (7065).
7002 and 7004 carbon fiber electrodes are shipped already housed in the matching guide cannula (7030 rat cannula for 7030 CFE, 7032 mouse cannula for 7032 CFE). Carbon fiber electrodes are ordered by the ability to remove them from the cannula for post-calibration. CFE-F electrodes are fixed in the cannula and cannot be removed for post-calibration.
Note: Please allow 7 business days between ordering and shipment of sensors. Longer lead times may also apply for custom sensor types. We will only ship sensors via FedEx 2-Day or Overnight.
