Scientifica PatchScope Pro 3000
The perfect hands-free patch clamp rig for pharmacological and network studies
New for 2022. Designed by electrophysiologists, for electrophysiologists. The PatchScope Pro 3000 is an integrated, hands-free, electrophysiology system. Designed for pharmacological studies, network studies and any other techniques in cultured cells, where more than one micromanipulator is required. Ideal for neuroscience, cardiac, and other ion channel research.
This compact and versatile package consists of an inverted microscope and two PatchStars micromanipulators. The system can be customisable to your specific research needs, including fluorescence imaging.
The user-friendly design means that the PatchScope Pro 3000 is simple to handle and work with - perfect if you are new to patch clamping as well as if you are experienced.
Built for patch clamping in cultured cells
The PatchScope Pro 3000 has been created by electrophysiologists, for electrophysiologists. There is no compromise in the design and use of the system as a flawless, purpose built, patch clamp rig for cultured cells.
Easy to use, simple to acquire data
The user-friendly design means that the system is simple to handle and work with - perfect if you are new to patch clamping as well as if you are experienced.
Record even the smallest electrophysiological signals
The ultra-low noise electronics ensure you can record small signals (including single channel recording) and acquire the highest data quality every time.
Acquire data from long-term experiments
The incredible stability of the integrated PatchStar micromanipulator and the complete system, means that you can be confident that your recording electrode and cells will remain totally stable.
Get patching, quickly
The PatchScope Pro 3000 can be installed, and set up ready to use, very quickly. This saves your time and ensures you can get on with your experiments without delays.
Maximise lab space
The slimline design of the integrated equipment creates a compact system, meaning that your lab space is maximised, the system is mountable on even the smallest lab tables.
Choose your preferred controller to acquire data
Control your rig with a Control Cube or PatchPad - whichever suits you. Both options enable you to control all aspects of your rig, including speed control, memory positions, and home-in and home-out for rapid pipette exchange.
Keep your sample in focus, at the push of a button
The Motorised Objective Changer allows you to change smoothly between two objectives, meaning you can see what you want, without having to touch the microscope.
Configure the system to suit you
The PatchScope Pro 3000 has been designed with versatility in mind - to meet your unique experimental needs. The system can be supplied with or without eyepieces and fluorescence.
Maximise your patching time with fast, reliable pipette exchange
The PatchStar manipulator incorporates a unique, reliable, pipette exchange system which enables you to rapidly change pipettes between experiments. Utilising a simple twist and slide mechanism, you can change your pipette and be ready to patch in seconds. The smart home-in and home-out offset function accounts for varying length electrodes.
Quickly change the fluorescence illumination and image
The motorised fluorescence allows you to adjust the florescence filters without touching the microscope, improving the reliability of your delicate recordings.
Single purchase, complete electrophysiology system
The PatchScope Pro 3000 is a complete system, meaning you can be sure that all components will integrate flawlessly.
Maximise experimental time
The system has been designed to be easy to service and maintain, minimising experimental downtime.
Complete integrated solution for patch clamping in cultured cells
The PatchScope Pro Systems offer a complete solution for patching dissociated cells or monolayer cell cultures. They are perfect for neuroscience, cardiac and ion channel research.
