Port-a-Patch – Prof. Dr. Friedrich Simmel

"The Port-a-Patch enables students and young researchers lacking formal training in electrophysiology to rapidly generate research grade data. Within the courses given at the Institute for Biomolecular Systems and Bioelectronics, the students gain hands-on experience in ­basic membrane biophysics and electrophysiology, which is of great value for their education."

Port-a-Patch – Prof. Colin Taylor

"We are using the Vesicle Prep Pro and Port-a-Patch in our laboratory to study recombinant channel proteins reconstituted in planar bilayers. The system is easy to use and it makes experiments very efficient. Besides the great equipment, Nanion, with their widespread expertise, is also providing excellent continuous support, helping with methodology optimization and problem solving."

Port-a-Patch – Marisa Rangel, Ph.D.

"Our planar lipid bilayers are obtained from GUVs prepared with the Nanion Vesicle Prep Pro setup. Together with the Port-a-Patch, Nanion´s state-of-the-art automated patch clamp platform, the efficiency of characterization of pore-forming peptides (and other ionophores from natural sources) in artificial bilayers has greatly increased. Both systems are straightforward and easy to use, allowing high quality, low noise, single channel recordings."
