Prof. Dr. Friedrich Simmel - Statement about the Orbit 16

Icon Orbit   “The Orbit 16 enables us to generate high quality, single channel recordings with synthetic DNA membrane channels, which in our experience are notoriously difficult to measure. DNA pores are quite hard to functionally incorporate into lipid bilayers, but could be successfully investigated using the Orbit 16, as published in Science. The Orbit 16 offers a drastic increase in throughput since it substantially speeds up formation of bilayers and data generation by its parallel recording channels, thus providing us an easy-to-use platform for efficient and accurate research on DNA nanodevice-membrane interactions.”
