Patch-clamp amplifiers from single channels to large macroscopic recordings

The Axon Instruments® series of amplifiers provide best-in-class solutions for the entire range of patch-clamp experiments. The portfolio of amplifiers includes Axopatch™ 200B for ultra low-noise single-channel recordings, MultiClamp™ 700B for whole-cell voltage-clamp and high-speed current-clamp recordings, and Axoclamp™ 900A for two-electrode voltage-clamp and current-clamp recordings.
  • Eliminate filters

    Design advanced protocols easily

    The Axopatch 200B Capacitor Feedback Patch Clamp Amplifier offers one of the lowest-noise single-channel recordings available via innovative capacitor-feedback technology.
  • Get consistent results

    Streamline workflows*

    Batch analysis macros enable the analysis of data files in batches and eliminates the need to define parameters for every data set.
  • Integrate with ease

    Analyze faster*

    StakMax®Automated event detection analyzes spontaneous and evoked action potentials and post-synaptic data. Identify events based on a variety of factors.


  • Comprehensive analysis tools

    The software includes a wealth of analysis tools including 24 cursor pairs for regions of interest search, graph plotting tools such as I-V plot and histogram, and more.
  • Improved visualization

    The membrane testwindow displays up to eight channels simultaneously, making it easier to control multiple channels.
  • Enhanced gap-free mode

    A simple continuous “chart-recorder” useful for monitoring single channel events, minis, and other spontaneous activities. Protocol-editor-style epochs and program digital or analog outputs can be executed.
  • Population spike analysis*

    This tool automatically calculates amplitude, area under the curve, half-width, decay and rise time, decay and rise slope, coastline of spike, and paired pulses.
  • Action potential analysis*

    This feature automatically detects and analyzes amplitude, APD90, rise and decay time, rise and decay slope, peak-to-peak frequency and time, and more.
  • Batch analysis*

    Macros for batch analysis eliminates the need to define parameters for every data set. Saved macros can be applied to multiple data sets for automatic analysis.
