FAST SCAN CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRY SYSTEM
Pinnacle's robust, turn-key FAST SCAN CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRY (FSCV) SYSTEM is designed to simplify the measurement of catecholamines (i.e., dopamine, norepinephrine, etc.) and other electroactive analytes such as adenosine. It functions by rapidly cycling a voltage across an implanted carbon fiber sensor and measuring the resultant current. Both the tethered system for mice and rats and the wireless system for rats have built-in support for controlling an external stimulus. The system ships with Pinnacle's FSCV software.
Preprogrammed and Custom Waveforms
The FSCV software offers preprogrammed waveforms associated with the commonly studied analytes: dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin and adenosine. Custom waveforms can be easily uploaded as well, and stored in a drop-down menu for quick selection.
