Patch Clamp Services

Manual patch clamp is the gold standard of electrophysiology and represents a powerful and versatile toolbox to stimulate, modulate, and record ion channel activity from membrane fragments and whole cells. Automated patch clamp solutions were developed to meet the higher throughput demands of the patch clamp technique.


Patch clamp technique is mostly used for compound effect studies on a single ion channel type. Manual patch clamp is as well used for biophysical characterization of ion channels. As compound effect studies we relate to:

  • compound MoA studies
  • safety/tox studies
  • screening studies
