Scientifica Patch Pro 3000 Electrophysiology Rig

Scientifica Patch Pro 3000

This electrophysiology system is designed for in vitro studies with your current microscope. This system includes a motorised movable top plate and two PatchStar micromanipulators. The large platform is great for easily adding additional manipulators. It is also compatible with advanced imaging such as two-photon and confocal.


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.

Designed for advanced imaging

Carry out electrophysiology experiments alongside two-photon and confocal imaging thanks to the fixed microscope position.

Large, motorised movable top plate

25 mm of super-smooth movement in the X and Y axes with plenty of space for additional manipulators or other experimental equipment.

Versatile movement

Easily examine the rest of your sample whilst maintaining patches.

Precise mounting

Position the manipulators close to your sample with the unique mounting carriages.

Extended Warranty

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

Control options

Control the motorised movable top plate, micromanipulators and focus (if compatible) 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.

PatchPro Pro 1000 - in vivo Applications

If you are interested in the PatchPro 1000 for in vivo applications, you can upgrade or order this with an in vivo plate in place of the sample plate holder. The in vivo plate has threaded holes spaced across the surface of the plate, which will enable the user to attach various tools, such as ear bars or head restraints. This allows for further options when using the PatchPro rig, if you are interested please contact us or look at the Post and Platform Sample Plate Holders page.
