Sample text

Two-Electrode Voltage Clamp System 1. A two-electrode voltage clamp system is designed for recordings of relatively large macroscopic currents from a single large cell such as the Xenopus oocyte in a much simpler manner as compared to the patch clamp technique. Depending on the length of the experimental protocol, tens to hundreds of oocytes can be screened in a week by a skilled operator. 2. Two sharp electrodes are used to impale a single cell. The electrodes act as either a “voltage” electrode or a “current” electrode, the former recording the transmembrane potential and the latter injecting current into the cell.
