HEKA S-Probe Headstage


NEW Compact Patch Clamp Headstage

Perfect for applications where space is limited or weight is an important consideration, the new S-Probe patch clamp headstage from HEKA provides you with a compact alternative to the standard patch clamp headstages supplied with their range of EPC10, EPC10-USB and EPC800 amplifiers*.  The S-Probe is also supplied with an extremely flexible cable, making it less prone to damage during use.

The electrical specifications of the S-Probe are identical to the standard Red Star Headstage, but it also features an optional bath sense connection, which allows it to operate in 3 Electrode Mode.  To find out more about how a 3-Electrode Mode Headstage can be used for Cyclic Voltammetry, please visit the HEKA website.

The S-Probe headstage has a thread connector to provide a more secure electrical connection between the headstage and the pipette holder.


  • Dimensions: 49 x 17 x 14.5 mm (without connector)
  • Weight: 25 g
  • 3-Electrode Mode option
  • Flexible cable for reduced cable stress
  • Thread-based connector to pipette holder for saver electrical connection

RMS noise values are:
31 fA @ 1 kHz
72 fA @ 3 kHz
120 fA @ 5 kHz

*The headstage can be used with an EPC 10 (revision ‘O’ or higher), EPC 10 USB (revision ‘N’ or higher) or with the EPC 800 USB amplifier, where 3-electrode mode is not possible.
