I know two companies in USA which sale pH milli-electrodes.
They may be able to make microelectrodes for you.
But I am not sure whether they will be glass microelectrodes.
The two companies are:

Microelectrodes, Inc.
40 Harvey Road
Bedford, NH 03110-6805
Telephone: 603-668-0692

Diamond General Corporation
