Graphene multielectrode arrays (GMEAs) presented in this work are used for cardio and neuronal extracellular recordings. The advantages of the graphene as a part of the multielectrode arrays are numerous: from a general flexibility and biocompatibility to the unique electronic properties of graphene. The devices used for extensive in vitro studies of a cardiac-like cell line and cortical neuronal networks show excellent ability to extracellularly detect action potentials with signal to noise ratios in the range of 45 ± 22 for HL-1 cells and 48 ± 26 for spontaneous bursting/spiking neuronal activity. Complex neuronal bursting activity patterns as well as a variety of characteristic shapes of HL-1 action potentials are recorded with the GMEAs. This paper illustrates that the potential applications of the GMEAs in biological and medical research are still numerous and diverse.

An AAA ATPase that binds and severs MICROTUBULES. It specifically recognizes and cuts polyglutamylated microtubules with short polyglutamate tails to promote reorganization of cellular microtubule arrays and the release of microtubules from the CENTROSOME following nucleation. It is critical for the biogenesis and maintenance of complex microtubule arrays in AXONS; SPINDLE APPARATUS; and CILIA. Mutations in the spastin gene (SPAST) are associated with type 4 of HEREDITARY SPASTIC PARAPLEGIA.
A versatile x-ray contrast medium for diagnostic radiology. It can be administered by most routes.
The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.
Modifying, carrying, or manipulating an item external to itself by an animal, before using it to effect a change on the environment or itself (from Beck, Animal Tool Behavior, 1980).
Membrane limited structures derived from cell membranes and cytoplasmic material, and released into EXTRACELLULAR SPACE. They circulate through the EXTRACELLULAR FLUID and through the peripheral blood in the MICROVASCULATURE where cells, much larger, cannot, thereby affecting a variety of intercellular communication processes.
