Scientifica SliceScope Pro 3000 Electrophysiology Rig

Scientifica SliceScope Pro 3000

A static microscope system designed for in vitro electrophysiology and capable of accommodating advanced imaging, such as two-photon and confocal. The system consists of a SliceScope, motorised movable top plate and two PatchStar micromanipulators. Move the platform beneath the fixed microscope whilst maintaining patches, for easy access to the whole sample.


Incredibly stable fixed platform

A thick top and legs ensure excellent stability for long-term electrophysiology and imaging

Slimline upright microscope

Easily place equipment around your sample and configure the microscope for specific experimental needs

Super-smooth micromanipulators

The PatchStar micromanipulators have 20 nm resolution for absolute positioning control

Ideal for network studies

Add extra manipulators to the large top plate to enable recordings from more than two electrodes for complex neuronal connection studies.


The platform, with incorporated mounting carriages, gives flexibility for positioning manipulators and other equipment. There are also options for fluorescent microscopy and a variety of contrast techniques

Control options

Control the focus, condenser, 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.

“[The SliceScope] is highly stable and has a minimal footprint, clearly the result of listening to the experimenter's needs combined with clever design.”
