Reach Conclusions Sooner using DSI Data Services

Laptop, Woman, Education, Study, Young, Computer

Managing large amounts of physiologic data can be time consuming and overwhelming. We are ready to help you simplify this process with an experienced team. No matter how complex your research is, we have the tools and expertise to help you successfully reach conclusions. 

Single and Multiwell MEA Systems

Multiwell systems can be used with neurons or cardiomyocytes both primary, or more recently, from derived stem cells for high throughput to investigate toxicological effects or subtle changes in neuronal activity or cardiac beating behavior. Multi Channel Systems' MEA systems record extracellular field potential noninvasively and with high spatial resolution, with the ability to perform long term studies.

Single Microelectrode Array Systems

Single Microelectrode Array (MEA) systems are used in the last steps right before animal experiments, using cells, tissue cultures, or more often with acute slices to investigate drug effects on, for example, synaptic plasticity.

Multiwell Systems

Multiwell systems are used with neurons or cardiomyocytes both primary, or more recently, from derived stem cells for high throughput to investigate toxicological effects or subtle changes in neuronal activity or cardiac beating behavior. Coupled with MEA Xpress our automated liquid handling platform you will have your experiments pipetted promptly and exactly. 




Patch Clamp Rigs and Automation

Let us customize your perfect patch clamp rig! Whether manual, automated or both, Smart Ephys can recommend a package tailored to your research needs, making your experiments more efficient.

Or automate your manual patch clamp setup by using PatchServer! The pipette-based automated patch clamp system combines advantages from the automatic and manual patch clamp approach and can establish whole-cell recording or excised patch configurations.
