"The new Port-a-Patch mini combines a small and easy set-up with an intuitive software and enabled us to generate data with minimal effort. With the help of a video tutorial we were able to record the effect of AITC on TRPA1 within an hour after setting up the system. This device can be a great tool for testing the effect of compounds on ion channels with the patch clamp technique without spending a lot of time with preparation like priming tubes or pulling pipettes. Especially the possibility of using small volumes (5-15 µl) as internal and external solution are an advantage when handling rare and/or toxic substances."
"One afternoon is all I needed to get familiar with the features and perform measurements. As an electrophysiologist and university lecturer, I see the Port-a-Patch mini as a great tool to introduce patch clamp to young university students, but also post-doc level scientists in need of a fast, high quality electrophysiology data."
