18.11.2008 | Nanion increases throughput and cuts costs with a new patch clamp screening robot

MUNICH, GERMANY, November 18, 2008 -- Today, Nanion announces the late-stage development of a new automated patch clamp platform: the SyncroPatch® 96. Developed to meet the throughput demands of industrial ion channel drug screening and safety profiling, and with a price-per-data-point compatible with screening standards, the SyncroPatch® 96 will offer the highest throughput in the market for high quality HTS-oriented ion channel screening.

Following the successful market introduction of two automated patch clamp devices, the Port-a-Patch® (2004) and the Patchliner® (2006), Nanion now introduces the SyncroPatch® 96. The SyncroPatch® 96 acquires simultaneous recordings from 96 individual cells in a well-plate format and allows for screening of both ligand- and voltage-gated ion channels. The platform supports giga-seal recordings, continuous recording during compound application and addition of multiple compounds to each of the 96 cells. Building on a proven successful technology, the new SyncroPatch® 96 vastly increases throughput while reducing the cost per data point.
