Application Note: Characterization of Ion Channels in Stem Cell-derived Cardiomyocytes on An Automated Parallel Patch Clamp System
22 June 2010

In this application note Molecular Devices use the PatchXpress 7000A automated parallel patch clamp system is used to record Na, K and Ca currents from stem cell-derived mouse cardiomyocytes. The collaborative effort demonstrates that the combination of “ready-to-use” cardiomyocytes with an automated patch clamp system offers a powerful assay platform for fast assessment of compound efficacy and for safety profiling of lead compounds in a biologically relevant system.
