Introduction to Ion Channel

Ion channels refer to pore-forming membrane proteins that allow ions to pass through the channel pore. In general, Ion channels locate in the membranes of all cells, as well as various intracellular organelles, and regulate a wide range of physiological processes, such as establishing resting membrane potentials, shaping action potentials and other electrical signals, as well as regulating cell volume. Furthermore, these ion channels are closely related to various neural activities, serving as important regulators in the nervous system. Therefore, ion channels, as common targets for toxins and therapeutics, always being the focus of neuroscience research.

Our Featured Ion Channel Screening Services

In the drug development process, the identification of target specificity and potential off-target effects are essential for compound drugs. Creative Biolabs has established a range of functional, manual, and automated ion channel screening methods for the evaluation of specific targets. Based on our established electrophysiology, label-free, and fluorescence-based screening platform, rapid and reliable data from ion channel screening for novel therapy development can be obtained. Our assay technologies include conventional manual patch-clamp electrophysiology, automated electrophysiology, as well as plate-based impedance and microelectrode array techniques.

Working to customers' specific needs, we are willing to create stable cell lines expressing various ion channels to meet your criteria. High throughput screening adaptable to a wide range of formats presents broad utility for ion channel study. Here, proper controls also are necessary to test compounds that directly or indirectly affect ion channel targets of interest.
