Hello,

 Anyone can give me some suggestions on how to get rid of electrode drift?
I'm doing whole-cell patch on isolated cells, using a Narashige 3-D hydraulic
(oil) manipulator. It's not big drift, about 5 micron or so, but is enough to
have effects on my recording.

Someone said it was due to the manipulator---- oil will change its volume with
temprature. I don't if it's true. Anybody has similiar experience can tell me
something? I'll appreiciate that.
