What area of your research can we help you with?
Complete Patch Clamp Setup
Let us customize your perfect patch clamp rig! Whether manual, automated or both, Smart Ephys can recommend a package tailored to you needs, making your experiments more efficient.
Start with a computer controlled HEKA amplifier that has integrated acquisition hardware. Available with one, two, three or four amplifiers, this hardware product line has advanced integration between interface and software to minimize total recording noise, eliminate compatibility problems and reduce additional equipment expenses and set-up time.
Automate your manual patch clamp setup by using PatchServer! This pipette-based automated patch clamp system combines advantages from the automatic and manual patch clamp approach and can establish whole-cell recording or excised patch configurations automatically.
In Vitro Solutions
Incubator ready MEA recordings
The MEA2100-Mini Series offers a miniaturized in vitro recording system with state-of-the-art power saving electronics and either 60 or 120 channels. Take full advantage of the MCS IFB 3.0 platform in addition to the option for continued use in an incubator. Easily upgradable from one to a maximum of eight headstages per system that can record from neural cultures or brain slices in parallel.
High Throughput MEA Recordings
The Multiwell-MEA-System is the perfect solution for medium to high throughput in vitro electrophysiology. This includes high-quality, low-noise amplifiers, and freely-programmable stimulators. High sampling rates allow your data to be sampled simultaneously at up to 50 kHz per channel. For substance screening, MCS combined the well-known Multiwell-MEA-System with the reliable and cost efficient Opentrons OT-2 pipetting robot to generate the automated MEA Xpress platform.
TEVC in Xenopus Oocytes
The Roboinject is the first and only commercially available fully automated robot for compound injection into oocytes, eggs, and embryos using industry standard 96, 384, as well as custom well plates.
The automation of cell injection not only saves time and money but also greatly enhances reproducibility of injection and survival of cells.
Automated Oocyte Screening
The Roboocyte2 is a fully-automated all-in-one solution for medium throughput screenings of ligand-gated and voltage-gated ion channels, as well as electrogenic transporters based on the well established Xenopus oocyte expression system. All necessary tasks are accomplished by a single robot. The automation of TEVC recording revolutionizes pharmaceutical drug discovery.
Cell Biology & Accessories
The Valve Control System (VCS) lies at the heart of a multi-valve perfusion system designed to automate and control the delivery of solutions to imaging and recording chambers. Each valve is individually accessed by a manual touch display, the included PC software, an external analog signal, or an external digital signal. The VCS systems are configured to control up to 8 Pinch, PTFE, or Mini valves.
