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.
