Microchannel Plates (MCP)

High Quality & Long Life

Microchannel plates (MCPs) from our partner are made from a proprietary glass formula, which ensures the highest quality and longest life of any other commercially available MCP.

  • Long life
  • High electronic gain
  • Immunity from magnetic fields
  • Fast response
  • Low noise


As the leading provider of MCPs for electron multiplication, we supply our MCPs in a variety of custom sizes  (4mm to 150mm) and configurations (Z-Stack or Chevron). Our extended dynamic range output option  increases detection up to ten times over traditional MCPs.

Available in detection, image, and premium grades, our MCPs are designed to provide stable gain and outstanding bias current stability. You can specify the pitch/pore size as well as the shape, size, and configuration. By partnering with Penlink for all of your MCP needs, you will get a detector exactly suited to your needs.

Improving TOF-MS Instruments Using TruFlite™ MCP

Our TruFlite™ microchannel plates provide a clear advantage to competitors’ products. Their superior flatness reduces time jitter and ion arrival time, as demonstrated below. If you are looking to improve the results of your TOF-MS instrument, upgrade your detector to include a TruFlite™ MCP.
