The Ugo Basile Lesion Maker has been designed for the production of localized electrolytic lesions in small animals where DC is preferred to RF, to produce the lesion.
It features a regulated power supply combined with a constant DC current generator which operates on either continuous or timed mode.
The current generator is protected against short circuit, which prevents the electronics to get damaged due to the electrodes coming accidentally in contact with each other.
Particular emphasis has been placed in the design of a good circuit output/ground insulation.
This feature, besides enhancing safe operation, minimizes spurious current field lines across the tissue, outside the pattern the operator has preset.
