Presenting: In vitro best practice considerations embedded in the ICH E14/S7B draft [Presentation in English*]
Thursday, 25th, November at 15:00 PM JST

The ICH S7B and E14 Q&As are being finalized managed by the Implementation Working Group. Since implementation of ICH S7B, in vitro assay and in vivo QT assay have been successful as a part of the core battery assays to safely bring investigational drugs to human studies, and lessons have been learned on how to best perform the assays.

This presentation will focus on clear recommendations of what should be provided for an in vitro assay, giving answers to Q2.1 in the E14/S7B draft "What are best practice considerations when evaluating drug potency on affecting cardiac ionic currents using the patch clamp method and overexpression cell lines?".

Acknowledging the predictive value of the core assays (in vitro patch clamp studies and in vivo QT assay), two scenarios to use such nonclinical data to inform clinical decision making will be presented. These “double-negative” nonclinical assessments can be used for clinical decision-making to more accurately determine TdP risk.

Presenting: Application Update: Introduction to NPC384T, the new and improved consumable type, Fluoride Free Recordings as well as Characterization of Piezo1 channels on the SyncroPatch 384 [Presentation in English*]
WHEN: Thursday, 25th, November at 15:50 PM JST


Selecting the appropriate consumable type is a crucial step in assay development depending on cell type, target expression profile and type of experiment to conduct. Our new consumable product line of NPC-384T chips aims to facilitate consumable selection while maintaining assay performance at the same time. The thinner piece of borosilicate glass used in these chips yields a shorter patch pore, lower contact and series resistance. During internal evaluations as well as external beta-tests we have identified the need for two new consumable types, namely S(mall)- / L(arge)-Type based on the patch hole size. Both types show improved properties over standard chips under same experimental conditions and aim to be the future chips of choice for the SyncroPatch 384. Additionally, as part of Nanion’s constant development, we also report the improvement in our APC applications. Firstly, we now developed an approach that allows for complete fluoride-free recordings without the necessity of CaF2 or other insoluble ion pairs at the interface of the patch clamp substrate which is possible by special consumable priming. The approach is implemented as a fully automated process taking place before the recording can be executed as usual. Lastly, we have tackled the relatively new class of eukaryotic mechanosensitive Piezo channels, which have recently gained enormous medical/scientific interest with new physiological function/roles constantly emerging. Using the flexibility to modify pipetting routines as well as customized consumables of the SyncroPatch 384, we are happy to provide an application where it was possible to stimulate Piezo1 channel activity in HEK, N2A - as well as Red Blood Cells. Besides chemical activation, Piezo1 channels were also activated by mechanical stimuli as well as the combination of both approaches. We are confident that these approaches will broaden the range of applications possible on the SyncroPatch 384 even further.
