CardioExcyte 96

CardioExcyte 96 (Nanion)

The CardioExcyte 96 (Nanion) is an automated, hybrid system that records both contractility and electrophysiology from cardiomyocyte networks for applications including drug screening or disease modelling.

System Specifications

  • Impedance and extracellular field potentials from the same well
  • 96 well parallel data acquisition
  • Integra Viaflow Assist provides automated multichannel pipetting for reproducible handling of cells and compounds
  • Non-invasive and label-free
  • Monitoring of acute and chronic drug effects
  • Electrical and optical (Blue light, 470nm wavelength) pacing
  • Incubation system allows for environmental control (Temperature, gas mix and humidity)
