Scientifica Ltd

Scientifica specialises in providing cutting-edge equipment optimised for electrophysiology, multiphoton imaging and optogenetics research. This, along with our friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff, empowers researchers to overcome experimental hurdles and achieve breakthroughs in neuroscience. 

Our world-class laboratory equipment allows researchers to gain a better understanding of the nervous system and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and epilepsy. 

From the UK, we manufacture and distribute high-quality instruments to universities, pharmaceutical companies and research laboratories to more than 40 countries worldwide. At the beginning of 2016, Scientifica opened an office in the United States, its first office outside of the UK. The new office, based in New Jersey, will improve our ability to support our growing number of customers in North America. 

We also have a number of selected local distributors in countries around the world. 

What we do: 


Scientifica, in collaboration with world-class researchers, has developed our own range of pioneering instruments for electrophysiology studies, including microscopes, cameras, micromanipulators and stages. To complement these products, we also sell equipment from well-known suppliers to provide a single source for all your electrophysiology needs. Suppliers include CoolLed, Molecular Devices, Multi Channel Systems, Nikon, npi electronic, Olympus and TMC. 

Multiphoton Imaging 

Scientifica’s award-winning multiphoton imaging systems enable researchers to harness a powerful technique for visualising structures deep within thick tissues. They accommodate a broad range of experimental needs and parameters for excellent image quality and data collection both in vitro and in vivo. 

Optogenetics & Uncaging 

The emerging field of optogenetics promises an exciting future for neuroscience and electrophysiology research along with the targeted application of drugs thanks to uncaging. Scientifica’s offerings in this area are quickly evolving, and our state-of-the-art LASU system enables laser applied photostimulation experiments at multiple wavelengths.
