A system for both oocyte and cell patch clamp and two-electrode voltage champ
This patent-pending design is based on the PatchMAX 100A, but it comes with two computer controlled manipulators. With the additional micromanipulator, the system can do two patch clamp experiments simultaneously, or one two-electrode voltage clamp experiment. With this new design, the system increases efficiency, decreases equipment cost, and saves space. As the system is controlled by the computer, the experiment becomes less labor intensive.
Run two patch clamp experiments simultaneously
The ChannelMAX 100A Mini comes with two computer controlled manipulators, as a result users can run two patch clamp experiments simultaneously. Doing two experiments at the same time allows for better decision making while doing experiments. Single channel activities are random events. It is difficult to understand what is going on by looking at the channel open and close, especially when you are working on a new channel. For example, it is hard to distinguish a channel with two open stages from two channels in the same patch. With two patches that are treated with the same conditions you have more information that could be critical in making the right decisions while working on the precious seals.
High quality patch clamp
ChannelMAX 100A Mini with 2 chambers As in the PatchMAX 100A, the ChannelMAX 100A the patch clamp is noise free and low drift. The computer controlled system eliminates human errors so the success rate of making gigaohm seals using the ChannelMAX 100A is over 90%.
