Product News: Molecular Devices to Showcase the Latest Electrophysiology and Imaging Approaches to Research Using pCLAMP® 10 and MetaMorph® Software Packages at Neuroscience 2012

01 Oct 2012

Molecular Devices will be showcasing their pCLAMP® 10 and MetaMorph® software packages with our Axon line of microelectrode amplifiers for whole-cell voltage-clamp or current-clamp recordings, and patch-clamping for ion channel research during Neuroscience 2012, booth 2213, Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, 13-17 October 2012.

“A combined use of electrophysiological and imaging technique will be the focus on the Molecular Devices’ booth this year,” explains Jeffrey Tang, Product Manager of Conventional Electrophysiology. “We will demonstrate how to synchronize pCLAMP and MetaMorph Software to acquire high-resolution electrophysiology and imaging data at the booth. Given the bustle of the show, we’ve tried to design a calm, relaxed environment where visitors can easily find the products they want and really take the time they need to discuss their research requirements with our staff.”

During the show, find out how the latest version of pCLAMP 10 fulfils many different experimental needs, such as tetanus stimulation protocols, population spike analysis, and action potential analysis.

Learn how the MetaMorph® NX Microscopy Automation and Image Analysis software can make image analysis easier, with an intuitive interface that enables the user to control a range of third-party instruments.

We will also be hosting a ‘Getting the Most out of Axon pCLAMP with MetaMorph Software and Andor Mosaic Symposium’ on Tuesday, 16th October, 18:30-20:30, which will bring together both customers and those with an interest in live-cell research that requires the need of employing complementary data acquisition simultaneously to describe intracellular processes. At this symposium you will learn how Molecular Devices’ new developments in live-cell analysis can accelerate your path to drug discovery. This symposium is intended for scientists who are interested in using electrophysiology techniques combined with imaging and optogenetics approaches in their research. This symposium will include tutorials on how to maximally use pCLAMP electrophysiology data acquisition and analysis software in their experimental workflows and how to correlate high resolution electrophysiology and imaging data temporally using the built-in capabilities of both pCLAMP and MetaMorph software packages simultaneously. The synchronization of these two essential tools will be described and demonstrated. Additionally, the integration of patch-clamping techniques with optogenetics will be discussed. The newly developed optogenetics technology has revolutionized research in neuroscience.
