Scientifica SliceScope Pro 1000

A full electrophysiology system for dual or single patch clamp recording. This package consists of the SliceScope microscope, motorised XY translation stage, two PatchStar manipulators and adjustable Post & Platform mounting systems for the manipulators and sample. Typically used for slice electrophysiology and fluorescent imaging, it is also available in in vivo configurations.


Slimline upright microscope

Easily place other equipment around your sample and configure the microscope for specific experimental needs.

Super-smooth micromanipulators

The PatchStar micromanipulators have 20 nm resolution for absolute positioning control and less than 1 µm drift in two hours for long term experiments.

Fully adjustable post and platforms

Made from high-quality steel and aluminium these ultra-stable platforms can easily be moved to any position desired to gain easy access to the sample.

Modular and versatile

Available in multiple configurations for in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology, with options for fluorescent and confocal microscopy.

Multiphoton imaging options

Future-proof your investment by choosing a system that can be upgraded to multiphoton imaging studies if your experimental requirements change.

Control options

Control the focus, condenser, translation stage and micromanipulators from any of our remote control options.

Alternatively use Scientifica’s LinLab software, developed specifically to control all of our motorised components and heating and perfusion elements.


““[The SliceScope] has all the best optical qualities of a top-flight microscope, pared down to the absolute essentials needed for patch-clamp electrophysiology, and then rebuilt with many highly useful features"
Professor Dmitri Kullmann, Institute of Neurology, UCL
