  Get an easy start with PATCHMASTER!


We provide a monthly PATCHMASTER training for beginners and prospective users. The basic principles of this powerful electrophysiology data acquisition software will be discussed and demonstrated. As we want to provide a class-room experience, the number of attendees is limited. Register here for your seat.

The S-Probe is out now.

The unique feature of the S-Probe is the massively reduced size and weight compared to our standard headstages. This increases the area of applications e.g. wherever the experimental space is limited or where the weight of the headstage itself matters.

A joint collaboration between Sensapex and HEKA
resulted in a very unique solution

It is now possible to use a Sensapex micromanipulator with the HEKA EPC 10, EPC 800 or iTEV 90 headstages. The Sensapex Intermediate Cable provides a solution to decouple the headstage from the
micromanipulator and eliminate thermal
drift and vibrations transmitted from the
headstage cable. Its design features
an excellent shield, minimal
capacitance and high flexibility.
