Scientifica SliceScope Pro 2000

An integrated electrophysiology rig ideal for dual or single patch clamp recording with a movable microscope. This system consists of the SliceScope microscope, motorised XY translation stage, fixed-stage platform and two PatchStar micromanipulators. The large plate allows the easy addition of extra manipulators or recording apparatus.


Incredibly stable fixed platform

A thick top and legs ensure excellent stability for long-term electrophysiology and imaging.

Slimline upright microscope

Easily place 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.

Ideal for network studies

Add extra manipulators to the large top plate to enable recordings from more than two electrodes for complex neuronal connection studies.


The platform, with incorporated mounting carriages, gives flexibility for positioning manipulators and other equipment. There are also options for fluorescent microscopy and a variety of contrast techniques

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.


“I'm so happy with the fact that for the next twenty years of my life, I will sit in front of the set-up which you have personalized us!”
Mr Richard König, University of Salzburg
“[The SliceScope] is highly stable and has a minimal footprint, clearly the result of listening to the experimenter's needs combined with clever design.”
Professor Dmitri Kullmann, Institute of Neurology, UCL
