Collaborative Activities and projects with B'SYS
“Impedance and field potential data of beating cardiomyocytes is getting increasingly important to obtain a comprehensive view of the cardiac liability of test compounds. To answer these questions for our clients, B’SYS successfully implemented the CardioExcyte 96 system and provides related validated services to its customers, mostly using ipS derived cardiomyocytes. B’SYS’ scientists are pleased with the CardioExcyte’s ease of operation and data acquisition. The powerful software allows for applying meaningful data analysis and time saving export of data as needed for our daily customer reports.“

SyncroPatch 384PE (a predecessor model of SyncroPatch 384i) data and applications:
Cells were kindly provided by B'Sys.
Here, activation and modulation of the NR1/NR2A subunit containing NMDA receptors are shown. Currents were evoked by application of 10 µM Glutamate in the presence of 10 µM Glycine.
Application of the neurosteroid Pregnenolone sulfate (PS) potentiates the current response induced by Glutamate. The potency of PS was analysed in a single-point screen. The EC50 of PS (39.6 µM), comprising 74% of the cells is nicely corresponding to litereature values (Irwin, et al. Neurosci. Lett. 1992)
