Looking for Merrill/Ainsworth electrodes

    For a long while I've been hunting for
    any company (or neuroscience research group) that
    makes and sells the classic "Ainsworth/Merrill electrode,"
    as described in

    Merrill EG, Ainsworth A (1972) "Glass-coated platinum-plated tungsten
    microelectrodes." Med Biol Eng 10:662-672

    The Merrill/Ainsworth electrode consists of tungsten with glass
    insulation, and platinum blacking of the tip. Most
    of the more prominent people in the electrode-making business
    (like FHC) tell me that they don't have the means or desire to
    do the glass coating of tungsten.

    Can anyone out there help me track down someone who still
    makes these Merrill/Ainsworth electrodes?
