High Quality, Functionally-Validated, Ion Channel Cell Lines
Ion channels are well known for having a critical role in nerve and muscle function and consequently have a key function in pain, CNS and the heart. Drugs that modulate ion channels have been investigated in therapeutic areas, such as neuropathic pain, cardiac arrhythmia, hypertension, local anaesthesia, stroke, Parkinson's, obesity, epilepsy, diabetes and depression.
Historically, ion channels have been under exploited as drug targets primarily due to the lack of functional high throughput screening technologies. Over recent years, there has been considerable progress in this important area. However, now there is a requirement for high quality research tools that will allow the full benefit of the new screening technologies to be realised. Upstate has built a portfolio of ion channel cell lines to meet these new and evolving needs in the drug discovery industry.
Our ion channel cell lines are available off of the shelf. These cell lines are fully validated using electrophysiology, stable (>25 passage) and licensed for drug discovery research. The objective is to provide the pharmaceutical industry with a range of ion channel cell lines to support drug discovery, lead optimisation and safety pharmacology functions.
The cell line has been screened using the PCR VenorGem kit (Minerva Biolabs) to confirm the absence of Mycoplasma species.
