The EPC 10 Double and EPC 10 Triple patch clamp amplifiers are the optimal instruments for performing double or triple patch experiments. Although either two (EPC 10 Double) or three (EPC 10 Triple) amplifiers are combined in a single housing; each amplifier is completely independent with clearly defined operation and handling. HEKA’s software stimulates the desired amplifier and selected channels are programmed without tedious connection of cables by the user.
The amplifiers and headstages are clearly identified, thus, the user can immediately assign the amplifiers to particular patched cells. Although independent, the amplifiers can be stimulated simultaneously with resulting simultaneous data acquisition. Current or voltage signals from multiple amplifiers can be recorded, displayed and even analyzed online. This versatility makes these amplifiers ideal instruments for experiments such as studying gap junction potentials, pre- and post-synaptic events, and even usage in amperometric measurements.
"I found this amplifier somewhat complicated to use. A preliminary demonstration for students would have been helpful. It was difficult to find out how to apply and develop for uses other than electrophysiology."
