Narishige's MF-830 microforge provides an ultra-fine finish to microelectrode tips for patch-clamp applications. The MF-830's advanced fire-polishing technology eliminates imperfections on the microelectrode surface which would otherwise damage delicate membranes when making tight patch seals.

The MF-830 features independent micromanipulators for positioning of the heater element and microelectrodes, as well as independent controls for heater and lamp adjustment. The unit features magnifications of 75X and 525X, with optional objective and eyepiece combinations available.
