Ejection of drugs from micropipettes by pressure is widely used for chemical stimulation of cells in electrophysiological experiments, but little is known about the dynamics of the processes involved. Several aspects of the formation of liquid droplets were studied by photographing them under a microscope using brief light flashes. The observations led to the following conclusions: 1. The characteristics of the micropipette tip strongly influence both the amount of liquid and the shape of the… CONTINUE READING
