Troubleshooting Advice

Specific advice given by some of our customers on how to deal with common problems:

“Make sure to use a guide tube if your experiment requires penetrating dura”

“Probes can be expensive, so make sure to order dummy practice probes which allow you to practice insertion and prevent you from damaging your probe”

“We have been able to use probes for many penetrations and for long periods of time, sometimes the signal on a few of the channels may degrade over time, these probes can be returned to like new condition by Plexon at a much lower cost than purchasing a new probe.”

“If you experience a decrease in SNR, you can send your probe back for a thorough cleaning by Plexon”

“Causes of breakage include bending or snapping against bone, and getting stuck inside the guide tube”
