The PatchServer brings automation to the classical patch clamp method.
Its unique pipette-based approach excels in high quality gigaseals, visual cell selection and fast compound application.
The PatchServer originated 2008 as a research project of our electrophysiology group at NMI-TT pharmaservices to develop an automated patch clamp system for ultra fast compound applications and stem cell research.

Currently, the PatchServer is actively developed and used for drug screening and safety pharmacology.
A commercial version of the PatchServer is also beeing independently developed by Multichannel Systems GmbH (MCS). For more information, see the MCS PatchServer product page.
