Acroscell, the division of Creative Bioarray, is a global leading provider of high-quality products and services that applied in the research of the academia, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries, specialized in but not limited to cardiovascular & neural system physiological/pathophysiological mechanisms with strong scientific support. Recently, Acroscell launched its — acron instrument portfolio to provide convenience for the entire patch-clamp electrophysiological technique.
The available equipment of Creative Bioarray for patch-clamping include but not limited to amplifiers, digitizer, software, and accessories:
Patch Clamp Amplifier—containing the circuitry necessary to measure the magnitude and direction of the current flowing through the cell membrane. The pipette tip forms a gigaohm seal with the film, providing an index related to the conductance of the film through which the current flows.
Digitizer—A data acquisition instrument that converts analog signals into digital signals. In order to perform the data analysis required for high-resolution patch-clamp measurements, analog signals must be converted to digital signals.
Analysis Sofware—The interface between amplifiers, digitizers, and any other patch clamp electronics, used to perform data acquisition and data analysis and to control digitizers and amplifiers.
Headstage—A device that uses a built-in circuit to fix the micropipette can transmit electrical signals from the micropipette to the amplifier.
Microscope—An important optical magnification tool. The micromanipulator is a device that mechanically manipulates a micropipette with nanometer precision, and can usually perform 3D movement. A microscope with a micromanipulator can accurately and stably position the micropipette to the cell membrane area. It is required for successful recording. An inverted microscope is preferred because it allows easier access from the electrode above the preparation, and also provides a larger, more robust platform to bolt the micromanipulator.
Faraday Cage and Tables—The Faraday cage is a wire mesh enclosure that surrounds the microscope and recording room, which prevents the electrodes from picking up unwanted noise sources. An air or anti-vibration table is used to isolate the device from external sources of vibration that may disrupt this alignment.
“Acroscell provides a broad portfolio of electrophysiological research products to monitor the communication between neurons and study the effects of physiological or pharmacological stimuli, utilizing the most advanced equipment to amplify and record small electrical signals of actions, membranes or synaptic potentials.” said Hannah Cole, the marketing director of Creative Bioarray, she also said, “Our experienced team and professional scientists are continuously developing techniques to accelerate the research for electrophysiology.”
As a mature division of Creative Bioarray, Acroscell definitely will be the ideal and reliable innovation partner in research endeavors. With the support of professional scientists and years of experience, We are capable to provide a knowledgeable, collaborative and flexible service to our clients so as to accelerated drug development and improved research quality for worldwide projects.
