Product News Feb 19, 2008
The CytoPAQ™ Instant Cells Kit is designed to replace time consuming and costly cell cultivation. This system is developed by Cytocentrics AG, consists of certified HEK 293 cells stably transfected with hERG (human ether-a-go-go related gene) channel, intracellular and extracellular solution, and Cell Reservoir (optional accessory).
CytoPAQ™ is a validated system in regards to PAQ (Performance, Accuracy and Quality) and lays the foundation for reproducible data generation, the company says.
The Instant Cells are ready to use in less than 15 minutes after thawing. The stably transfected cells are optimized for manual and automated patch clamp and comply with high safety pharmacology standards.
Cytocentrics claims that, each lot is quality assured: in addition to vitality testing, extensive patch clamp measurements have been performed in which seal rate, current amplitude, percentage of rundown and whole cell rate were elucidated.
