  • Publication number: 20100041093
    Abstract: Disclosed is a liquid holder mechanism (10) which is designed to form a liquid environment at a capillary tip (22) of a patch clamp pipette (20) and includes a holding element (11.2) for retaining a liquid drop (1) and at least one rod (12.2, 12.3) for positioning the holding element (11.2) on the capillary tip (22). The at least one rod (12.2, 12.3) is designed such that the holding element (11.2) can be separated from the capillary (21) in a state in which the liquid holder mechanism (10) is connected to the patch clamp pipette (20). Also disclosed are a measuring instrument that is equipped with said liquid holder mechanism (10) as well as a method for electrophysically analyzing a biological cell with the help of the liquid holder mechanism (10).
