Posters from SPS2019 in Barcelona now live

As always we spend some good days at the SPS meeting, getting new acquaintances and meeting old friends and partners.

Steve Jenkinson (Pfizer, San Diego) did a well-received talk:

The use of High-Throughput Multi Ion Channel profiling [on Qube 384 ed.] and in silico modelling in assessing arrhythmia risk: One Pharma’s experience and perspective”.

A very interesting presentation that addressed the Pfizer’s approach to early de-risking in cardiac safety. However, as an oral presentation, we cannot post it here, but watch out for similar talks in the future.

Five posters using QPatch was presented, emphasizing QPatch as the benchmark automated patch clamp solution for cardiac safety
