Get to Know Us Better
The Scientifica Story
Founded in 1997 our customers were initially just in the UK, but international researchers were also contacting us for our products and services. In 2013, we became part of Judges Scientific PLC joining a network of other elite scientific research companies.
Today, we export worldwide, serving customers directly and through a network of trusted distributors. Our headquarters are in Uckfield, UK, with a Sales office in New Jersey, USA, and manufacturing operations based in Maidenhead, UK.
With an international team dedicated to high-quality product development and support, we are proud to be fulfilling our vision of becoming the world's most trusted supplier of electrophysiology and imaging systems.
Our Primary Research Areas
Electrophysiology is the study of electrical activity in biological systems, focusing on cells and tissues, and is vital for understanding nerve and muscle function, as well as diagnosing and treating related medical conditions, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
Multiphoton Imaging is an advanced fluorescent imaging technique used in biology and neuroscience to visualise living tissues and cells with high precision by using multiple lower-energy photons to excite fluorescent molecules. It allows for deep-tissue imaging and is valuable for studying complex biological processes with minimal damage to the sample.
Optogenetics and Uncaging are techniques in neuroscience and cellular biology for precise control of cell or neuron activity. Optogenetics uses light-sensitive proteins, while Uncaging releases active molecules from caged compounds using specific stimuli.
