Sophion products contain a large amount of software, including robotic control software, embedded software, user-facing application software and analysis software.

Our software is developed by a dedicated team of experts in their respective fields, such as signal processing, statistical data analysis, robotics, and user interfaces. We also have an in-depth knowledge of the application field – automated patch clamping. Through daily collaboration with our customers, we have gained valuable insights into the research, protocols, quality parameters, workflows and procedures used in electrophysiology groups and HTS labs.

Sophion software is under continuous development, always with the final user in mind.

User interfaces

A key contributor to an efficient laboratory is the ability for everyone to learn to operate an instrument easily. We strive to ensure that our user interfaces are easy to learn so you can:

  • Reduce human errors
  • Ensure fast training and onboarding
  • Enable fluent staff rotation
  • Eliminate operator-to-operator variation

For QPatch II, we have tested that even untrained personnel can learn to start an assay in 10 minutes.

Sophion Analyzer Software

Vast patch-clamp data sets are easily obtained with automated patch clamping, necessitating rapid and automated data handling. Sophion Analyzer leads the industry by providing advanced data analysis on hundreds or thousands of experiments simultaneously and maintaining the high information content characteristic of patch-clamp experiments.

Sophion Analyzer allows fast, automatic analysis of large data sets. The software is designed to set up experimental assays and subsequently analyse the data by setting up cursors for measurement and selecting different analysis methods and fitting procedures.

Once the methods have been chosen for one data set, additional data is automatically evaluated similarly when included in the analysis project. This leads to a consistent and objective analysis of data. For documentation purposes, reports with user-defined content allow the automatic and quick presentation of graphs and data tables.

  • Traceability – The user can track all changes
  • It can run on any PC
  • Security – Raw data is protected against modifications
  • Accessibility – Remote access to data is possible via LAN or the Internet
  • Simplicity – Template based and designed for ease of use
  • Integration – standardised export formats for Genedata and FDA

  • "Using a QPatch or Qube is fairly simple. You can train someone up very quickly, within half a day, to use the instrument. In a few more days, they can generate data, conduct analysis, use the software and plot their data "
