The best Alternative to EC2 paste – lic2 Electrode Cream
Why is it the best alternative to EC2 paste?
- Easy to remove
- Ensures accurate recording
- Tube is designed for direct applications
- Significant improvement of electrode impedance (Comparison of 34 PSG recordings; Number of samples N=132; T-Test with p<0.05)
- Also suitable for long-term EEG monitoring
- 100 g tube (3.5 oz.)
CNSac offers a particularly good solution eeg electrode cream for the attachment of cup electrodes: lic2® electrode cream. Better impedance, more resistance to heat and sweat, and easier removal are just a few reasons why you’ll want to use lic2® for your EEG exams in the near future.
Have you noticed that your usual electrode cream is no longer available and are looking for alternatives? Well look no further! CNSac is pleased to offer you the best alternative for attaching electrodes in routine EEG, long-term EEG, long-term video EEG, epilepsy EEG and sleep EEG / PSG.
Why the best alternative? Compared to other common electrode creams, lic2® has significantly improved electrode impedance* and is more resistant to body temperature and perspiration. After the examination, the patient will thank you for the properties it contains to make it easier to remove and those same properties makes it particularly suitable for long-term EEG examinations.
Each box contains 10 x 100g (3.5 oz.) Tubes of paste.
Having a high quality electrode is only part of the picture when perusing a strong and reliable signal. The correct treatment of the skin and maintaining a stable placement of the gold cup electrode is critical to reach a low impedance recording during an EEG examination. CNSac gold cup electrode are naturally optimized to provide low impedance and easy placement however, skin preparation gel (such as Nuprep) and a quality adhesive conducting paste like lic2 should be used to achieve a less than 5k ohms impedance (according to American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM))
