Patch Clamp Setup

RECOMMENDATIONS
  Product What We Recommend

1

Amplifier
Measures changes in membrane potential or currents resulting from ion-flux through ion channels.
HEKA EPC 10 USB
Amplifier with built-in data acquisition LIH 8+8, completely software controlled
HEKA EPC 800 USB
Amplifier can be paired with different data acquisitions; with front panel control

2

Data Acquisition Software
Powerful software to control the amplifiers, record and analyze data is a critical tool to produce solid results. We offer you an extensive and flexible software package together with our amplifiers.

DAQ converts analog signals into digital signals. We offer solutions for whole-cell, singlechannel, bilayer, loose patch, intracellular voltage  recordings and amperometry.

HEKA PATCHMASTER NEXT
Multi-channel data acquisition software and amplifier control
HEKA FITMASTER
Analysis software
HEKA SMARTLUX
Imaging software for simultaneous imaging and
electrophysiological recordings supporting high-end low light cameras
HEKA LIH 8+8
Data acquisition, can be paired with different amplifiers

3

Microscope
Optical tools to scale up your sample. In cooperation with Zeiss and other microscope manufacturers, we offer  the best solution for your project. For slices, fluorescence, optogenetics, and many more.
ZEISS AXIO OBSERVER
ZEISS AXIO EXAMINER
Our patch rigs are also compatible with microscopes from Olympus, Nikon, and Leica. Please talk to your sales representative for further options.

4

Table
An anti-vibration table is required to compensate vibrations which can disrupt your recordings. Even small vibrations in picometer range can break down your seal.

Imaging/Recording Chambers and Stage Adapters
Series 20 Imaging and Recording Chambers are designed for electrophysiological recording and/or optical imaging. Applications include patch clamp, oocyte clamp, and other physiological  measurements on cell cultures and tissue preparations.

WARNER CHAMBERS:
RC-26G and PM-1 platform for cultures
RC-27L and PM-6 platform for slice recording

There are many other chamber options available on the Warner website.
Stage Adapters allow the Warner family of products to fit your microscope stage.
Adapters available for almost every upright or inverted stage.
