Following the tradition of IonWorks® Systems before it, this new system delivers the highest throughput for automated electrophysiology analysis available at the lowest cost per data point. It also incorporates the patent-pending Population Patch Clamp™ (PPC) Recording Technology that revolutionized ion channel screening and has become the standard for directed library and hit-to-lead applications.

The IonWorks Barracuda System can screen both voltage-gated and rapidly-desensitizing ligand-gated ion channels due to the unique design of the Patch Plate Consumable and an electrode plate that enables researchers to add compound while recording. In addition, the system can generate more than 1,100 data points per hour as a result of being able to add compounds and record from 384-wells simultaneously.  

Measuring from 384 wells in parallel means that researchers can now complete a screening experiment in as little as 20 minutes, making the new IonWorks Barracuda System the technology of choice for drug discovery programs focused on ion channel targets. No other system on the market today can provide the same combination of throughput and low cost per data point for screening large, directed compound libraries against ion channel targets via direct electrophysiology assays. Because of the low running costs of IonWorks platforms the system can
