Electrophysiology requires slicing of live soft tissues. The quality of your experiment depends on the quality of the tissue slice. Your daily productivity also depends on the quality of the tissue slice. The viability of the brain slice, especially the healthy neurons in the top surface layers are crucial to the success of brain slice patch clamp electrophysiology. The Compresstome® semi-automated VF-200-0Z and fully automated VF-300-0Z produce the highest quality brain slices for these researches.

Compresstome at the Allen Institute for Electrophysiology

At Precisionary Instruments, we aim to push the boundaries of scientific research. That’s why we love to see how scientists find new ways to use our products.

At the Allen Institute, the “open science” concept pairs neuroscientists with system engineers to come up with innovative ideas and conjure them into existence. We are proud that the Compresstome® can be part of this project, helping the scientists work with both mouse brains as well as human brain tissues.
