MICRON® Image-Guided Focal ERG

Image-Guided Focal ERG System optimized for use with rodents.

  • Attaches to the Micron IV camera
  • Deep Red fundus view keeps animal totally dark adapted
  • Micromanipulators enable precise placement of focal stimulus on a target area
  • Built-in corneal electrode - no more small

ERG Clean software

Powerful Phoenix analysis tools not only extract the oscillatory potential but automatically build a waterfall display.

CLEAN Power Filter

The Phoenix CLEAN signal processing routine filters out 60 Hz noise often found in building power systems. The unique process avoids the distorting effects of notch filters or bandwidth clipping, and allows single ERG measurements without needing to average the low-level ERG signals to eliminate the noise.

Ganzfeld ERG

A stand-alone unit featuring compactness and a large dynamic range. Both UV and green light available to match the rods of the rodent eye.

Focal ERG

Attached to the MICRON® imaging system and allows precise targeting of the retinal location to be studied while maintaining dark adaptation. Supports a wide range of focal spots available.

A fully functional system

Equipped with a full range of functions such as flicker, background saturation and OP wave extraction.

Equipped with CLEAN, a Phoenix innovation that identically removes 60 Hz pickup.

Image-guided Focal ERG for Rodents

MICRON® Image-Guided Focal ERG quantitatively determines retinal function at precisely located positions and outputs a spatial map of retinal performance to facilitate assessment of treated versus non-treated regions. This is enabled using a deep red image and a deep red probe spot, seen on the MICRON® IV image in real time, and then flashing a white light stimulus and recording the electrical signal.

The image-guided ERG modality functions as an attachment to the Micron IV retinal imaging system, maximizing laboratory space. The MICRON® IV provides illumination and imaging at 850 nm, supporting the highest levels of dark adaption.
