Scientifica SliceScope Pro 6000

A full electrophysiology system with a static microscope that enables in vitro and in vivo studies, including advanced imaging such as two-photon and confocal. The system consists of a SliceScope, motorised movable base plate and two PatchStar micromanipulators.


Slimline upright microscope

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

Ultra-stable motorised base plate

An electrically quiet, stable and versatile platform with 50 mm of movement in x and y-axes.

Super-smooth micromanipulators

The PatchStar micromanipulators have 20 nm resolution for absolute positioning control.

Modular and Versatile

The perfect foundation for many different configurations or custom designs including in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology and imaging.


The fixed microscope makes this system ideal for multiphoton or confocal imaging, maintaining optimum laser alignment. If you don’t require these options yet then upgrade as your experiments develop.

Control options

Control the focus, condenser, motorised top plate and micromanipulators from any of our remote control options. Alternatively use Scientifica’s LinLab software, developed specifically to control all of our motorised components.
