Using current-to-voltage application of OPAMP:
Connect signal to -in of OPAMP, Ground to +in.
Connect 250-ohm resistor between OPAMP output to -in. The impedance to drive the measuring instrument is the Z-out of OPAMP. The output is -1V to -5V instead. You need another stage to convert to 0 to 5V, if it is necessary.
Note: This is theory only, no lab work done.
