For over forty years Digitimer have manufactured and distributed a wide range of quality electrophysiology equipment, including biological amplifiers, stimulators and other products, used by biomedical researchers worldwide.  We offer a wide range of in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology equipment and currently represent eight companies. Please use the drop-down menus or the product links above to discover more about equipment you may be interested in.

We offer a range of data acquisition (DAQ) interfaces from HEKA, including the ITC-18 formerly manufactured by Instrutech and several from National Instruments. These DAQ systems are predominantly designed for high speed electrophysiology data acquisition, including voltage and patch clamp recording.  The NI boards we offer have been chosen for compatibility with QtracW, a specialist threshold tracking software for human nerve excitability research.


HEKA PCI & USB Host Interfaces

Digitimer manufacture and supply biological amplifiers suitable for many biomedical research applications. Our NeuroLog System range includes biological amplifier modules suitable for intracellular recording, extracellular recording, isolated, multi-channel recording and transducer (force or pressure) monitoring.

Techniques involving manipulation under microscopic control are vibration sensitive, therefore, it is necessary to invest in a good anti-vibration table as the first stage when assembling a new electrophysiology rig.

Signals recorded using biological sensors and other high impedance devices are often contaminated with 50 or 60 Hz noise corrupting the content of these signals and degrading the quality of subsequent data analysis. The Hum Bug noise eliminator offers a novel solution by subtracting mains frequency interference from your signal in realtime without filtering.


Representing the AutoMate Scientific, Harvard and Scientific Systems Design, we supply chambers and temperature controlled micro-incubators for many applications.

The DG2A has been designed to provide you with a simple battery powered controller of repetitive stimulation and operates in several modes. It is also useful for determining effective refractory period through use of a second, delayed pulse.  For more complex timing protocols, such as repetitive bursts, please refer to the the timing and pulse generating modules within the NeuroLog System.

Digitimer recommends Thurlby Thandar function generators for use with our D179 Performance Checker. The D179 is capable of attenuating a calibrated output from one of the function generators below, so it can be fed into a clinical amplifier system.  The actual amplifier gain can then be verified against the expected gain, as an amplifier performance check.

Digitimer supplies a range of software packages for use with many of our hardware products from AutoMate Scientific (ValveBank) and HEKA Elektronik (patch/voltage clamp amplifiers).  We are also the sole source of the specialist QtracW nerve excitability/threshold tracking software.
