We created an ultra-convenient, cryopreserved version of our PrecisION® ion channel stable cell lines to remove the tedious cell culture component that is traditionally associated with ion channel assays. Ready-to-Assay™ ion channel frozen cells are cryopreserved for high viability and functionality and can be either thawed to an assay plate or flask for use in experiments in 24-48 hrs.
These Ready-to-Assay™ cell lines are available exclusively to cell line license holders.
Advantages of Ready-to-Assay™ Ion Channel Frozen Cells:
Figure 1. Comparison of continuous and Ready-to-Assay™ ion channel frozen cells on IonWorks® platform.
hERG cells that were either continuously cultured (Cat. No. CYL3038) or thawed from the Ready-to-Assay™ frozen cell format (RTA, Cat. No. CYL3038RTA) were tested in parallel on the IonWorks® automated electrophysiological device and were shown to have comparable function. Data were calculated by taking the maximum amplitude of hERG currents upon stepping to -50mV during the third pulse of a three pulse train. The data shown were calculated using the ratio of Post (post-compound addition pulse) / Pre (pre-compound addition pulse).
