From: Quantitative investigation into methods for evaluating neocortical slice viability

  Frequency (/min) Amplitude (μV) Length (s) % Active locations
“Standard” conditions 3.2(0.6-11.0) 173.0(32.2-1247.1) 1.7(0.6-8.7) 57.5
Long CO2 2.5(0.5-11.1) 52.8(9.9-840.1)** 2.0(1.1-5.1) 60.3
Slicing delay 30 mins 2.5(0.6-9.7) 63.1(13.2-236.5)** 2.0(1.4-3.7) 40.8
Unfiltered tap water 2.0(0.6-31.8)* 36.0(10.3-424.7)** 1.8(0.7-3.3) 58.9
