Molecular Devices IonWorks™ High-Throughput Ion Channel Screening System
Product News Sep 24, 2002
[i0]Molecular Devices Corporation have announced the introduction of IonWorks HT automated patch clamp system for ion channel screening in drug discovery. The IonWorks HT system performs whole-cell patch clamping on multiple cells in parallel, loads the wells and achieving multiple seals at a time. During processing, the system measures whole-cell current from multiple cells simultaneously using the multi-channel voltage clamp amplifier. The system aspirates from standard 96- and 384-well microplate formats and dispenses reagents in parallel with a 12-channel pipettor.
