Product benefits

Combine electrophysiology and imaging perfectly with the IMTP

Maintain precise alignment of your microscope and laser inputs while moving your sample and manipulators along the X and Y axes.

Maintain patched cells during exploration

Safeguard patched cells while exploring new areas of interest, all thanks to the micrometer controls and crossed roller bearings that ensure ultra-smooth motion.

Integrate into your existing inverted set up

Save time and costs by integrating the IMTP with your inverted microscope. This compatibility is achieved through meticulous top plate design and versatile, height-adjustable legs.

Maximise manipulators travel range

Rely on the exceptional stability of the mounting platform to carry out long-term patch clamp and imaging experiments with confidence.

Flexible sample space

The IMTP accommodates standard chamber adaptors, and the deep sample chamber with a locking mechanism ensures secure positioning for cultured or dissociated cells.

Position the set up where you want

The IMTP's clever slotted inserts on its feet provide flexible rig arrangement on both metric and imperial antivibration tables. The IMTP's adjustable and lockable legs are designed to align perfectly with the inverted microscope's focal height for a seamless match.

Explore your entire sample

With 25 mm of travel along the X and Y axes, the IMTP enables you to thoroughly explore and study your chosen research area.
