Ultrafine glass micropipettes can be easily beveled in a jet stream of grinding compound suspended in saline. The beveling is gradual and continuous, highly reliable, and can be accomplished with common laboratory apparatus. The beveled electrodes are comparable in performance to those prepared with expensive commercial bevelers.
