Happy holidays from all of the team at Scientifica! Please note our closing times over the holiday period: 21st December - 1st January 2019

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the world’s most trusted provider of advanced electrophysiology and multiphoton imaging systems, enabling significant scientific discovery within the neuroscience research community.

To do this we need a great team of knowledgeable, skilled and passionate people. We call this the Scientifca DNA. The Scientifica DNA has been created by our people. We asked them what Scientifica meant to them, and from the responses we received, we were able to pull together our Core Values or our DNA.  These reflect what we are, how we do things and where we want to be.

Charity

Scientifica and our people enjoy supporting various organisations throughout the year. We hold many internal events to raise vital funds for charities, big or small.  We also like to support others with their fundraising, so if you are taking part in an event for charity please let us know and we can discuss how we can support you.

We are heavily involved in raising money for the Alzheimer's Society, and have also raised money for Alzheimer's Research UKMIND and Mental Health Foundation.

Some of our team took part in a 5K run to raise money for MIND in June, 2018
