Alpha MED Scientific engineers, manufactures, and markets MED64 Microelectrode array systems. In 1997, Panasonic leveraged their electronics expertise to develop and launch the original MED64 as the first commercially available in-vitro microelectrode array system. Our mission is to enrich electrophysiologists with our industry leading expertise in electronics design and manufacturing.
MED64 systems provide multi-point extracellular electrophysiological measurements that provide rich data useful for exploring cutting edge neuroscience and cardiac research. MED64 systems employ a novel electrophysiological method for recording electrical activity from cells using an array of planer microelectrodes embedded in a glass substrate. Scientists in fields such as neuroscience, stem cell biology, safety pharmacology, toxicology, and drug discovery and screening take advantage of the ease of use and industry leading sensitivity of MED64 systems to answer important scientific questions.
The MED64 is central to driving advancements in biology and medicine.
