HMsERG LAB System
A Critical Component - Advancing Eye Research
In advancing the science of electrophysiology of vision, we are bringing new and user friendly diagnostic instruments to researchers. The OcuScience® HMsERG is used in research on all types of mammals as well as birds and reptiles. Some key features of technology in our product line include the ability to use "protocols" to conduct standardized series of tests as defined by the International Society for Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV), or create your own customized protocols. We incorporate a calibrated mini-Ganzfeld stimulator for the best illumination of the whole retina. The white on white LEDs can produce up to 30 cd.s/m2.
OcuScience® supports many laboratories around the world in their efforts to better understand the eye and bring major advancements in medicine. ERG is a quantifiable measure of the retinal "electrical" response to a specific light stimulus. This electrophysiological response can be interpreted to diagnose diseases, identify toxicological effects, and analytically assess therapeutic treatments.
Our portfolio includes necessary accessories for conducting ERGs on all sizes of mammals and other vertebrate species. We have a broad line of electrodes for different research and clinical environments including "active" silver-embedded nylon thread electrodes, ERG-Jet contact lens electrodes as well as reference/ground stainless steel subdermal needle electrodes.
Mouse ERG is a common animal model used with the HMsERG. We provide a variety of accessories for mice, in order to maximize their comfort during ERG studies.
If You Perform Rodent ERGs in Your Lab, It's Time to Consider Using the OcuScience® HMsERG LAB System
The OcuScience® HMsERG LAB System Has a Convenient Set-up That Includes the Same Robust ERG Device Found in our HMsERG Combined With a Moveable Heated Exam Table and Controller, a Rodent Sized Faraday Cage for Signal Isolation and Built-in Clamps to Aid You in Positioning Contact Lens Electrodes.
