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.
