Abstract

We find that quartz is better than borosilicate glass as a material for micropipettes for certain microelectrode applications, including ion-selective microelectrodes of the liquid membrane type. Details are given of a graphite heating element that can be mounted on a standard microelectrode puller and used for making quartz micropipettes. A novel method of silanizing micropipettes is described. Experience with a novel miniature beveller that is fitted on a microscope stage is reported.
