Application Note: iCell® Cardiomyocytes – Multielectrode Array System Application Protocol
17 July 2013
Multielectrode array (MEA) technology is a non-invasive platform that measures local field potentials of electrically active cells and thus the activity of the underlying ion channels. With proper handling, iCell Cardiomyocytes can be cultured on MEA chips to form a stable electrically and mechanically active syncytium amenable to electrophysiological interrogation. Together, iCell Cardiomyocytes and MEA technology form an excellent, non-invasive platform for assessing the potential pro-arrhythmic properties of compounds.
