Scientifica Movable Top Plate (MTP)

A stable and versatile platform ideal for electrophysiology and two-photon imaging.

Move your sample and find new areas of interest whilst maintaining long-term patch clamp experiments.

Benefits

Simple mounting

Easily mount manipulators like the PatchStar to the top plate with sliding carriages for exact positioning.

Compatible with most upright microscopes

The MTP can be used with a large number of microscopes from the major manufacturers, such as Nikon, Olympus, Leica and Zeiss.

Ultra-stable design

Once in the desired position the stable design allows for long-term electrophysiology and imaging recordings.

Super-smooth movement

The micrometer controls and crossed roller bearings, allow fine movements of the platform to investigate areas of interest even when cells are patched.
