The QPatch 16X patch clamp station (Sophion Bioscience) allows automated, high-throughput assays of whole cell current with real Gigaseals resistance. With a user-friendly experiment execution, the Qpatch system enables 16 simultaneous and individually controlled patch clamp recordings. The four independent pipetting heads with intelligent scheduler allow more efficient liquid handling, especially for ligand-gated ion channel experiments. This automated platform present many other features as single- or multi-hole plate recordings, clone screening, multiple intracellular solution testing and quick data analysis.
