Scientifica Motorised Movable Top Plate (MMTP)

An electrically quiet, stable and versatile platform perfect for electrophysiology and two-photon imaging.

Move your sample whilst maintaining long-term patch clamp experiments.

Benefits

Super-smooth movement

20 nm resolution for absolute positioning in X and Y axes.

Ultra-stable motorised platform

An electrically quiet, stable and versatile platform with 25 mm of movement in x and y-axes.

Large, versatile mounting plate

Space for multiple manipulators and other equipment on easy to mount sliding carriages.

Silent

Electrically quiet for recording of extremely small signals without having to switch off the motors.

Control options

Operate via our ergonomically designed control options or through the specially designed LinLab software.
