Primary brain cells on Qube 384

Author(s): Kim Boddum, Melanie Schupp, Hervør Lykke Olsen

Native cells represent a promising alternative to cell lines due to more physiological behaviour.

Primary brain neurons and astrocytes were tested on Qube 384

  • Neuronal Na+ and K+ currents were measured in voltage clamp
  • Neuronal action potentials were measured in current clamp
  • Astrocyte K+-currents were elicited with both ramp- and step-protocols
