Ion Flux Integrated Workstation
VERSA 600 IonFlux Setup Workstation
The VERSATM 600 IonFlux Setup Workstation is a small, automated liquid handling workstation designed to automatically set up IonFlux Plates for the Fluxion’s IonFlux Automated Patch Clamp System. This bench-top integrated workstation provides an efficient, high throughput solution for fully-automated patch clamping. The VERSA IonFlux Setup Workstation conserves expensive reagents, eliminates concerns associated with volumetric variations caused by manual handling and automates all repetitive pipetting protocols.

About the IonFlux
By integrating microfluidic perfusion with standard well plates, Fluxion has produced automated electrophysiology systems that look and operate much like a benchtop microplate reader. The IonFlux systems have made patch clamping simpler, faster and better than ever before.
The IonFlux comes in two configurations to meet the widest variety of application needs. The IonFlux HT, featuring 64 independent amplifier channels, is designed for high throughput screening of ion channel targets. The IonFlux 16 is ideally suited for ion channel research and assay development. Both systems offer cell ensemble recording to improve reliability and variability.
