儿茶酚胺遥测系统采用快速扫描循环伏安法(FSCV)的工作原理，专门用于儿茶酚胺(i.e., dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin)的测量。可以用于测量自由清醒活动状态下的动物。该遥测系统适用于大鼠。
FAST SCAN CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRY SYSTEM
Pinnacle’s FAST SCAN CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRY (FSCV) SYSTEM is specifically designed to simplify the measurement of catecholamines (i.e., dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin). Pinnacle offers turn-key systems for both mice and rats. Both the wireless rat system and the tethered mouse system use carbon fiber sensors to enable short-term measurement in the brains of freely moving animals.
HOW IT WORKS
Biogenic amine levels are detected by rapidly cycling a voltage across an implanted carbon fiber sensor and measuring the resultant current. Our systems can measure spontaneous sub-second neurotransmitter release events while conducting detailed behavioral studies. Both the wireless and tethered systems sweep from 250 to 400 V/s in a user-selectable range spanning -1.1 to +1.3 V. All systems have built-in support for controlling an external stimulus.
l Voltage Span: -1.1 V to +1.3 V
l Range: 250 – 400 V/s
l Sweeps/second: 5 - 10
l Points/sweep: 1000
