Tecella Awarded Patch Clamp Amplifier Patents

FOOTHILL RANCH, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 8, 2012) - Tecella has been awarded three patents that cover a range of technologies for patch clamp amplifiers.

The three patents (US Patent 7,741,829, 8,163,147, and 8,163,527) cover spread spectrum capacitance compensation, dynamically damped series resistance compensation, analog leak compensation, and internal model cell incorporation.

The spread spectrum capacitance compensation enables artifact-free computer controlled compensation.

Dynamically damped series resistance compensation enables higher compensation levels of fast transient responses.

Analog leak compensation allows higher signal-to-noise recordings even with loose seals, and works even with series resistance compensation turned on.

Internal model cell allows for automated system calibration as well as post-experiment system verification.

All of these innovative technologies are incorporated in Tecella's Pico 2 patch clamp. Control of the Pico 2 by 3rd-party acquisition systems recently became even easier with the introduction of a breakout box from Poregenic. Send inquiries about or orders for the breakout box to
