News Nov 09, 2005
Nanion Technologies GmbH was recently awarded the Bavarian Innovation Award 2005 and is Bavarias Company of the year (small/medium enterprise (SME)).
Nanion received the award for its chip-based patch clamp technique, which allows performing sophisticated electrophysiological measurements from cells in an automated and parallel manner.
Nanions entry level device, the Port-a-Patch©, supersedes the common pipette based patch clamp technique in ease of use and throughput and doesn't require a microscope, vibration isolation or a micromanipulator.
The Port-a-Patch© uses an all electrical read-out for automatically positioning and electrically contacting cells on the chip.
With the Port-a-Patch©, Nanion offers the world’s smallest patch-clamp workstation. This innovative drug discovery technology makes patch clamp available also to non-electrophysiologists.
This innovation and its successful market introduction has been award the prestigious prize, which clearly is an important step and great commendation for Nanion.
In new studies a novel oxygen-delivery therapeutic restored the function of oxygen-starved heart tissue in an animal model of global hypoxia. Unlike its experimental predecessors, the new drug does not appear to cause systemic side effects or overcorrect with excessive blood oxygenation, which can itself be toxic. Instead, the new drug delivers its precious oxygen cargo only to the tissues that need it most.READ MORE
