ATP and the BOLD response

The fMRI BOLD signal forms the basis of almost all modern functional brian imaging studies. The origins of this signal remain unclear. A superb new paper establishes a link between the rapid activity-depdendent release of ATP and the generation of fMRI BOLD responses in somatosensory cortex. This is a landmark paper that changes the field, and Sarissa's ATP biosensors helped the authors to develop the evidence to substantiate their fi ... Read More

New potentiostat launched

We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers a new purpose built potentiostat. This new device, designed for use with our microelectrode biosensors, offers a cost effective way to make simultaneous dual biosensor recordings. It features the ability to measure small (pA to nA) currents at low noise, and allows the use to see the current on each biosensor as well as the differential current between the channels -ideal for subtra ...
