HEKA headstage s-probe low currents

Low current measurements

The S-Probe is a pre-amplifier, which allows for the recording of very small currents with low noise. It is used in combination with the PG 611 USB, PG 618 USB or EPC 10 USB. Its small size and low weight allows for direct mounting on the Z-piezo axis avoiding additional cable connections. It can be operated in 2- or 3- electrode mode. The S-Probe must be ordered together with a compatible potentiostat or Patch Clamp amplifier.

RMS noise values are:

  • 31 fA @ 1 kHz
  • 72 fA @ 3 kHz
  • 120 fA @ 5 kHz
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 49 x 17 x 14.5 mm / 1.92 x 0.65 x 0.55 inch, without connector
  • Weight: 24 g
  • 3 Electrode Mode option
  • Flexible cable for reduced cable stress
  • Thread-based connector to pipette holder for saver electrical connection
