How to assemble a planar lipid bilayer workstation (1156k)
Many investigators have requested reference material on how to set up a planar lipid bilayer workstation. Here we provide an excerpt from our BC-525D Bilayer Clamp Amplifier User's Manual wherein we describe the components required and discuss several issues related towards their use. You will also find a short list of references at the end of the document.
BLM Workstation components (3690k)
This document is Warner's current Bilayer Workststion borchure and is a companion to the 'How to assemble a planar lipid bilayer workstation' document listed above. All the components necessary to set up a Workstation are detailed.
Recording Chamber Perfusion Strategies (33k)
This is a document by Trese Lienders-Zufall describing several strategies for perfusing Warner recording chambers. (circa 1989)
Cleaning Warner Chambers (41k)
Several investigators have requested information on how to clean Warner Imaging Chambers, as well as our Bilayer Cups and Chambers. We have developed a quick and easy method to safely clean all plastics.
