Scientifica Movable Top Plate for electrophysiology

The HoloStim-3D seamlessly integrates with the HyperScope, an award-winning multiphoton imaging system, to create an industry-leading spatial light modulator (SLM) system for all-optical interrogation of neural networks with previously unachievable performance.

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.

Large, versatile mounting plate

Space for multiple manipulators and other equipment on easy to mount sliding carriages.
