Configuration and Setup:
Fully computerized patch clamp amplifier with built-in data acquisition interface
True Current Clamp capabilities. True noise measurements from 100 Hz to 15 kHz.
A “Low Frequency Voltage Clamp”(LFVC) mode is provided to automatically inject an appropriate amount of current to preserve the membrane potential, at a desired level during current clamp measurements
Port-a-Patch Specifications: Chip resistance: 2 - 3.5 MO (customized resistances available) seal resistance: > 1 GO whole cell resistance: > 1 GO series resistance: < 10 MO liquid consumption: ~ 30 µl/compound perfusion time constant (Perf. Sys.) ~ 100 ms internal perfusion time constant: ~ 5 sec avg. whole cell stability: ~ 20 min successful whole cell recording: 70 - 90 % (consistent between cell lines) throughput: 20-50 dp/day

Add Ons Included with the System:
Port-a-Patch External Perfusion System with Temperature Control (cooling and heating)
Port-a-Patch Internal Perfusion System
Vesicle Prep Pro for making vesicles

The Port-a-Patch is a miniaturized patch clamp system enabling the user, regardless of experience, to generate high-quality data rapidly.
Nanion Technologies successfully validated the system with numerous ion channels expressed in different cell lines and many different primary cells and stem cells.
The Port-a-Patch is a turn-key system with a quick and easy start-up for learning patch-clamp.
High-quality measurements with giga-seals and high success rates can be performed in whole-cell, cell-attached, perforated patch, and bilayer recording configurations.
A borosilicate glass chip, NPC-1, containing a micron-sized aperture, is used for recordings.
A cell is captured from a cell suspension and automatically sealed to the chip. The program continues to apply suction pulses until the whole-cell configuration has been reached.
Versatile add-ons such as external perfusion, internal perfusion, and temperature control make the Port-a-Patch a handy and flexible tool for ion channel research.
The complete Nanion Port-a-Patch Clamp Amplifier w/ HEKA EPC-10, addition accessories, and software makes this system equivalent to a fully equipped recording setup that includes a digital storage oscilloscope, a variable analog filter, a sophisticated pulse generator, and a full-featured data acquisition and analysis system.

*SM* Small Crate
OB Packed Weight - 250lb

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.



Here we are showing you our standard packing process  

      1. All items are different, but they all follow the same principle when packaging.

      2. Start with a well-constructed crate

A well-constructed crate would consist of 1/2” to 5/8” Plywood with framing. We generally purchase our crates from a third party who specializes in custom crates.

      3. You always want the Instrument to not be directly on the wood deck of the crate. This is done by placing it on foam, inside of the crate. We use 2” 1.7 lb. density foam which works great. It provides cushioning and enough firmness to support the Instrument.

      4. The next step is to make sure there is nothing on the deck of the Instrument and the Head/ Arm is secured. In some cases there will be multiple arms to secure but for this example there is only one. The reason for this is so there is no free movement during transit which could cause serious damage to the Instrument.

      5. The next step is to make sure your Instrument is covered in either a pallet bag or shrink wrap so no dust or foreign object will get into the crate.

      6. The next step is to secure the instrument inside the crate by bracing. We use a method of 2x4’s which have 1” foam shrink wrapped to them so no piece of wood touches the actual instrument.

      7. Final step is to photograph everything inside the crate and then seal it with screws.
