Phoenix Ganzfeld ERG
Phoenix Research Labs’ Ganzfeld ERG System is optimized for the unique retinal response of rodent photoreceptors and provides the specific capability to excite S-Cones, M-Cones, and rods. The system is equipped with the unique Phoenix “dark lab” technology so that the eye can be dark adapted to the fullest for murine rods. A proprietary software suite controls the stimulus for UV and green—providing full control of pulse width, delay, intensity, and flicker.
The unique Maxwellian view design enables placing the corneal electrode on the front lens. With an infrared camera for guidance, the electrode can be gently contacted to the cornea even in the dark, keeping absolutely dark adaptation and stable contact to the eye.
