Slicescope Upright Microscope

Scientifica Slicescope Upgright Microscope


The SliceScope Upright Microscope is a popular fully-motorised, fixed stage, focusing nosepiece, upright microscope widely used by world-leading researchers.

The SliceScope is a very stable, compact upright microscope designed to meet the demands of electrophysiology and related techniques - including two photon imaging. The versatile and modular design enables easy integration of a wide range of objectives (including those from Olympus and Nikon), light sources, optics and other accessories to best suit your application.

The small footprint and low noise electronics, as well as the remote control, have made the SliceScope an integral part of electrophysiology and rigs around the world particularly when incorporated as part of a SliceScope Pro system.

  • Price - Motor control at near manual price
  • Motorized focus control - gives remote fingertip focus control
  • Motorized condenser control - for optimal Koehler illumination
  • Narrow, Ultra stable profile - extra room for equipment around your experiment
  • Low noise electronics - suitable for demanding single channel recordings
  • Choice of contrast - Oblique, IR DIC and Dodt Contrast
  • In vivo & In vitro - can be configured and converted between the two
  • Easy pipette exchange - increased productivity and reproducible positioning
  • Modular design - easily configured into a user built 2P or confocal design
  • Unique "follow" software module - update LinLab to keep your pipettes within field of view as you move around your sample.
  • Choice of accessories - customise your SliceScope to suit your experiments needs.
