QPatch II - Sophion

Improving the benchmark for cardiac safety

QPatch II

A barcode scanner on the gripper arm
and stacking of plates on the work
plane provides faster and more robust
automation.

QPatch II is designed to overcome the constant pressure to increase lab efficiency while maintaining high throughput and data quality.

The new intuitive software interface ensures fast training and onboarding, reduce human errors and enable staff rotation in the laboratory.

The faster control software and new hardware design deliver robust unattended operation, so you can meet the demands of a modern and up-to-date ion channel laboratory.

Meet tomorrows demands today

  • The new user interface enables untrained personnel to learn how to operate QPatch II in less than 10 minutes
  • New control software gives a faster and more precise unattended operation which helps meeting demanding timelines.
  • New instrument design provides a reduced cell consumption, smaller footprint, a simplified work plane and improved modules for cell handling and QPlate positioning, all to further improve assay quality and instrument robustness.
  • New software features such as online adaptive V½ estimation, predefined standard protocols (for e.g. CIPA) and possibilities to run or re-run directly from system without any setup steps.
No seal enhancing agents, individual pipetting and individual control of pressure system is still the hallmark of the QPatch operation, ensuring that experiments are performed as close to physiological conditions as possible and that all wells are treated individually. The closest you can get to Manual Patch clamping

Build on a solid foundation

Sophion QPatch has been the benchmark APC solution for cardiac safety since 2005. We thought it was time to raise the bar. However to ensure concordance to historical data we have ensured:

  • QPatch II has full correlation with QPatch
  • 1:1 protocol transfer from QPatch to QPatch II

While the old virtues of QPatch persist
