Microelectrode Array Recording System (AlphaMED)
MED64-Presto  Microelectrode Array Recording System (AlphaMED)


The MED64 Presto is a microelectrode array (MEA) system that incorporates the industry leading sensitivity of the MED64 platform in an easy to use multi-well format. Modern, intuitive, easy to use software makes data collection and analysis effortless.

The MED64 Presto is engineered for researchers who need the correct answer to their scientific inquiries and reveals data that can be missed by other platforms.



High-sensitivity Electrodes in Multi-well Format

The MED64 Presto’s electrodes are engineered for sensitivity to reveal data that can be missed by other systems. Better sensitivity mean more signals can be detected from your cells. Presto’s new carbon nanotube technology provides a flatter electrode surface compared to traditional MEA electrodes resulting in better cell adhesion onto the electrodes.

Varieties of MEA Plates

The MED64 Presto’s MEA plates are available with 6, 24, 48, and 96 well format. Transparent plates allow for easy viewing of cells. The 24-well plate has 3 types of well shapes. Sakura plate is engineered for easy and accurate seeding of cells. CellSpotter cartridge is available to help your cell seeding both for eco and comfort plate.
