09.11.2018: Australia's chief scientist opens IHMRI's new electrophysiology lab

Australia's chief scientist, Dr. Alan Finkel, opened the new electrophysiology lab at the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI) on Friday. Pictured here with Nanion long-standing friend and customer, Professor David Adams, the two take a closer look at the SyncroPatch 384PE which was installed earlier this year in the lab. In a twist of fate, Dr. Alan Finkel was previously CEO of Axon Instruments and VP Engineering at Molecular Devices, rival companies of Nanion, but Alan was delighted to celebrate the opening of the facility and operation of Nanion's SyncroPatch 384PE, the first instrument of its kind installed in Australia. Alan said of the SyncroPatch 384PE, “This machine is an extraordinary automatic robot, it allows scientists to measure in 384 simultaneous measurements potential new drug candidates that would be effective in diseases of the brain and nervous system." Executive Director of the IHMRI, Professor David Adams said of the instrument, “This machine is a game changer, it will allow us to do things we couldn’t do before in terms of throughput – not only for drug discovery but in terms of characterising cells.”
