Ag/AgCl - Wires

High purity silver (99.99 %) wires are used to fabricate these electrodes. The chloridized Ag/AgCl Electrodes are made by a carefully controlled electrochloridizing process and yield better results than the sintered electrodes for intracellular DC recordings. The sintered Ag/AgCl electrodes are made by a sintering process which causes the AgCl to adhere better to the wire than does chloridizing, making these ideal for use in longer term AC recordings.

Ag/AgCl - Pellets and Disks

These disk and pellet electrodes have pure silver wire embedded in the matrix. They are reusable, resurfacable, and never need chloriding. They are essentially non-polarizable. These electrodes are commonly used as reference electrodes.
