nanoZ Kit

The nanoZ Kit features a computer-based device for multichannel electrode impedance measurement, automated electroplating, site activation and site rejuvenation.  The device also delivers electrical current for lesioning or tissue marking. 

The nanoZ device uses very low-test currents for both in-vitro and in-vivo experiments, measuring the impedance of a 64-channel electrode array in less than minute. A nanoZ Holder & Stereotaxic Rod is also available for use with Neuralynx’s Tetrode Assembly Station.
