QPatch II automated patch clamp - benchmark platform for cardiac safety

GigaOhm seals in physiological solutions - since 2005


We have designed QPatch II to overcome the constant pressure to increase lab efficiency while maintaining medium and high throughput and data quality. QPatch II truly is automated patch clamp made easy and based on the solid foundation established by the QPatch technology since 2005.

The intuitive software interface ensures fast learning and helps reduce human errors, which also enables easier staff rotation in the laboratory.

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

Meet tomorrow’s demands today

  • True gigaseals without additives, no seal enhancer or fluoride needed
  • The user interface enables untrained personnel to learn how to operate QPatch II in less than 10 minutes.
  • The control software gives a fast and precise, unattended operation, meeting demanding timelines.
  • The instrument design provides low cell consumption, a small footprint, a simple work plane and improved modules for cell handling and QPlate positioning, all to further improve assay quality and instrument robustness.
  • Software features include online adaptive Vxx estimation and adaptive and adaptive (Iadapt) current clamp, both of which generates tighter data spread and hence more predictive results
  • Predefined standard protocols (e.g. CIPA) and the possibility to run or re-run directly from the system without any setup steps.
  • The temperature control regulates the measurement site temperature during your assay, which means standardized temperature settings for every assay performed.
  • Use your QPatch II as a liquid handler with the QPatch II Commander feature.
  • Integration – standardized export formats for Genedata and FDA
No seal-enhancing agents, individual pipetting and individual control of pressure system are still the hallmark of the QPatch operation, ensuring that experiments perform as close to physiological conditions as possible and that all wells are handled individually. With adaptive both voltage- and current clamp protocols the data spread becomes much tighter and more predictive.
