Bilayer recordings typically mean tedious waiting for bilayer formation, protein introduction and eventually ion channel activity. The Orbit mini combines the parallel membrane preparation and measurement techniques with a maximum of portability and ease of use.

The complete Orbit mini platform consists of the main recording unit with a built-in four channel amplifier (Elements s.r.l.), and an optional computer-controlled environmental control unit for active cooling and heating of the recording chamber. Ionera's MECA 4 disposable recording chips are used for manual painting and recording of four artificial lipid bilayers in parallel.
