Recombinant cell lines that functionally express human cardiac ion channels are a valuable tool for testing new drugs for potential side effects that induce proarrhythmia. It can be difficult to maintain a constant quality of these cell lines in a continually passaged culture making this process incompatible with routine screening in high-throughput mode. Here we demonstrate the preparation of Patch Ready Cells prepared from five cell lines expressing recombinant ion chan-nels (B’SYS, Switzerland) which are recommended by the CiPA initiative for drug safety testing. The Patch Ready Cells have been tested by automated patch-clamp on a SyncroPatch 384PE (Nanion, Germany) to demonstrate their applicability in high-throughput cardiotoxicity testing.
