|Description||Artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF)|
|Biological description|| |
Artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF) is prepared from analytical grade reagents and high purity water. It is microfiltered and sterile.
Uses & applications
It closely matches the electrolyte concentrations of CSF and is frequently used when sampling from brain interstitial fluid. It is regularly used in patch-clamp electrophysiology.
