Lund Stem Cell Center Electrophysiology Facility
Welcome to the StemTherapy's Electrophysiology Core Facility!
Electrophysiology is the study of the electrical properties of biological cells. This includes measuring changes in voltage and current across membranes or entire structures such as the brain and heart. Electrophysiological recordings are commonly used to study the following:
- Measure the membrane properties of cells (e.g., resting membrane potential)
- Detect the presence of specific channels and receptors
- Study the function of membrane channels and receptors
- Measure the characteristics of action potentials
- Detect synaptic transmission
The platform can also be used for micromanipulator assisted collection of single cells for e.g., single cell quantitative PCR.
The StemTherapy Electrophysiology Core Facility offers state-of-the art equipment including an EPC10 double patch clamp amplifier, multi-channel fluorescence capabilities and differential interference contrast for imaging of living cells. The Unit is located at BMC B10 inside the cell culture facilities making it ideal for recordings of in vitro generated and expanded cell lines and cultures.
