Implementation of a kinetic hERG Assay Protocol Using QPatch 48


The Metrion Biosciences team recently produced an application note reporting the successful validation of the ‘Milnes’ voltage protocol for hERG screening using a QPatch 48 automated patch clamp (APC) assay platform. First reported in 2010 using the conventional whole cell patch clamp technique (Milnes et al., 2010, J. Pharmacol. Toxicol. Methods, 61(2), 178-191), this assay [...]
