ETRIS: Education & Training Resources in In-Vivo Sciences

Educational resources and protocols


Constructing Inexpensive, Flexible, and Versatile Microdialysis Probes in an Undergraduate Microdialysis Research Lab is a protocol for a laboratory in which students construct and then utilise microdialysis probes to analyse glutamate release in rodent brains.

This publication provides a complete, step-by-step description of the methodology and equipment required for students to construct, test and utilise their own microdialysis probes, including the surgical procedures.

It was developed by Dr’s Steffes & Sandstrom, Central Michigan University, MI, USA and is published in the Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education (2008) 7 (1): A33-A47. Copyright is retained by the journal.

This resource will be of use in undergraduate student education.
