Sophion Bioscience - Pioneering Ion Channels

Pioneering
ion channels

Sophion was founded by passionate electrophysiologists, all having the shared purpose of making patch clamping objective and independent of user skills to provide faster, more accurate and objective clamping results. We believe we have succeeded, but we are not done yet

 

Reliable high- and medium throughput screening methods such as the Sophion QPatch 48

have helped accelerate the drug discovery process for ion channel modulators
