We want to hear from you...

If you have purchased FHC’s microelectrodes, positioning devices or recording systems in the last couple of years then you should have been asked to participate in our Customer Satisfaction Survey. This online survey asks you to rate FHC’s product performance, service, delivery, technical support and more. All respondents are entered into our quarterly “Gifts from Maine” drawing for either 6 of the world’s best lobster rolls (US only) or a $100 gift certificate from L.L. Bean--another great Maine business with a global presence. We want to know how we are doing and are grateful for all feedback.

FHC also likes to learn about how our products are being used. Here are the responses from four of our most recent winners:

“I use your microneurography needles to record single-fibre and multi-unit muscle sympathetic nerve activity and study cardiovascular regulation. In particular in patients with cardiovascular disease, such as chronic kidney disease, drug-resistant hypertension, heart failure and sleep apnea.” - Jonas Spaak, MD PhD, Cardiology, Danderyd University Hospital, Dept. Clinical Sciences, Karolinska Institutet

 “We use your electrodes for both in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology. For instance, we use your tungsten microelectrodes for stimulating brain tissue in vitro, and your axial array microelectrodes for ‘multielectrode’ recording in vivo.” - Michael C. Crair, PhD, Neurobiology , Opthamology and Visual Science, Yale University

 “I am working toward my PhD at Brain Science Institute, Japan. I use FHC modified tungsten microelectrodes to perform single unit electrophysiology in Macaque Monkeys. The research question I am working with is "Study on contribution of neural circuitry in the inferior temporal regions (the Inferotemporal cortex and the Perirhinal cortex) to learning of semantic knowledge." - Manoj Kumar Eradath, Riken Brain Science Institute

 “ My main area of research is visual neuroscience, and during my training I have conducted single unit electrophysiology experiments using various animal models ranging from macaques to mice. I am currently most interested in the various time-courses of plasticity in the early visual cortex, and am performing single unit recordings in mice and cats. I was first exposed to FHC products as an undergraduate, and have been consistently impressed with their quality and reliability. That is why, after using equipment from various manufacturers during my training, I chose to purchase quite a few products from FHC when I was setting up my own recording laboratory.” - Nathan Crowder, PhD, Assistant Professor, Psychology and Neuroscience, Dalhousie University

Congratulations to all! And thank you for providing FHC with important feedback. We look forward to hearing from more of our customers.
