Scientifica Patch Pro 2000 Electrophysiology Rig

Scientifica Patch Pro 2000

An electrophysiology system ideal for dual patch clamp recording with your own microscope. The system includes a motorised microscope XY translation stage, two PatchStar micromanipulators and a fixed-stage platform. Easily add extra manipulators or recording apparatus to the platform.


Super-smooth micromanipulators

The PatchStar or MicroStar manipulators have 20 nm resolution for absolute positioning control and less than 1 µm drift in two hours for long-term experiments.

Ultra-stable fixed platform

The SlicePlatform is a large mounting plate ideal for complex imaging and electrophysiology studies with maximum stability.

Universal motorised stage

50 mm of super-smooth movement in the X and Y axes with an optional Z focus module. Compatible with a wide range of microscopes.


Compatible with a wide range of upright microscopes.

High-quality construction

All Scientifica products are made by hand in the UK using superior materials and manufacturing methods.

Extended Warranty

For a limited time, the warranty of Patch Pro rigs has been extended to three years.

Control options

Control the focus, translation stage and micromanipulators from any of our remote control options.

Alternatively use Scientifica’s LinLab software, developed specifically to control all of our motorised components and heating and perfusion elements.
