Webinar: Electrophysiological Phenotype Characterization of Human iPSC-Derived Neuronal Cell Lines by Means of High-Density Microelectrode Arrays
(Oct 15 | 11:00AM EDT).

Learn how HD-MEAs were used to characterize and compare human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived dopaminergic and motor neurons, including isogenic neuronal lines modeling Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in vitro.


Cellular Dynamics

Using LEAP to Measure Cardiac Action Potential Morphology

See the newly launched protocol for Local Extracellular Action Potential (LEAP) measurements of plated iCell Cardiomyocytes2 and how this method provides a more robust, high-sensitivity measurement of ion channel activity in safety pharmacology and automated detection and classification of arrhythmias.
