10.02.2017 | Biophysics Satellite Meeting: Drug Discovery for Ion Channels XVII

Venue: New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Louisiana, USA

Room 210; 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

We are proud to be sponsor of this Meeting.

Meet Niels Fertig, Andrea Brueggemann, Frank Henrichsen, Michael George, Maria Barthmes, Markus Rapedius, Rodolfo Haedo and many more.

Abstract: "Ion channels are an important class of therapeutic drug targets, and mutations in ion channel genes are found to be responsible for an increasing number of diseases. While conventional electrophysiological techniques permit the most detailed and direct study of ion channel function, they are limited due to the manual nature of the method and their low throughput. Because of this, ion channels remain an underrepresented target class for drug discovery. The advent of higher throughput automated electrophysiology systems has begun to change the face of ion channel drug discovery. Since the inaugural "Drug Discovery for Ion Channels" satellite meeting, there have been many advances in ion channel drug discovery including new instrumentation and techniques. For this year, we propose to continue the "Satellite Meeting" tradition at the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting to review the advances in automated electrophysiology and other emerging technologies and their impact on ion channel drug discovery. This year's meeting will highlight presentations from users of automated electrophysiology instrumentation as well as other speakers in the field of ion channel drug discovery, including several academic speakers."

The preliminary speaker list include:

Dr. Jen Pan, Associate Director (The Broad Institute)
"High throughput electrophysiology to annotate channel functions in the context of disease genetics"

Dr. Jun Chen, Senior Scientist (Genentech)
"Discovery of novel Nav1.7 scaffolds"

Title: "Effortlessly scaling up automated patch clamp research with Genedata screener".

Abstract: "This tutorial will show how the capabilities of Genedata Screener for Ion Channel Screening have been expanded with our latest software release. Screener now allows effortless scale-up of automated patch clamp (APC) research with improved experimental overview and comparisons within and across experiments. These new capabilities will be exemplified with our latest Ready-to-Run integration: the Nanion SyncroPatch 384PE. We will show how all QC parameters, compound information and cursor names are directly imported, allowing automatic and coherent evaluation of data, and thereafter present prototypical assays from a compound screening and safety viewpoint, with titrations performed both with cumulative addition and across wells. We will also outline further processing capabilities, e.g. specific control wells enabling per-sweep normalization, before we conclude by providing an enterprise workflow perspective for modern ion channel pharma research."

 

A joint poster will be presented by Genedata and AstraZeneca showing data of the SyncroPatch 384PE.

Prof. Carlos Villalobos will show in his presentation his data on Icrac and Isoc recordings on the Port-a-Patch Instrument.

Statement of Prof. Carlos Villalobos about the Port-a-Patch:

"We have used Nanion´s Port-a-patch for recording endogenous Icrac, the small calcium-release activated currents that are becoming very important in cell fate and cancer hallmarks. In addition, measurements were carried out in primary cultures of human, coronary, vascular-smooth muscle cells, a very difficult cell type to patch, and several normal and tumoral, epithelial cells. In the beginning I was very skeptical, because the currents are extremely small. However, the results were excellent and clear cut. It is possible to investigate the pharmacology and molecular biology of these channels during the phenotypic switches related to transdifferentiation, aging or tumorogenesis".

Join our SyncroPatch 768PE Tutorial
"The SyncroPatch 768PE: A Genentech Experience"
Dr. Jun Chen, Senior Scientist, Genetech
Monday, January 25, 2016
Time: 12:30 - 1:15 P.M.
Room: 15 A

Please join us to learn more about the Syncropatch 768 PE, a high-throughput planar patch-clamp system with true giga-seals and low running costs. The tutorial will consist of a brief introduction to the system followed by Dr. Jun Chen describing their experience with the system in a drug discovery laboratory at Genentech. Beverages and desserts will be served to accompany the SLAS provided lunch.

Dr. Jun describes his talk:
"Electrophysiology is the gold standard for studying ion channel functions, but its utility is hindered by low-throughput and requirement of highly trained staff. In recent years, several automated electrophysiology platforms have emerged. Here, we will share our experience with Syncropatch 768PE, a platform possessing high data quality and offering the highest throughput on the market. We will show how we implemented Syncropatch 768PE and enabled unprecedented capacity for ion channel drug discovery."

Please join us to hear about real world customer experiences with our latest instrument for planar patch-clamp in a drug discovery environment. Stop by Nanion’s booth (#1421) for more information and to see the instrument in detail.

27.01.2016 | WEBINAR: Orbit mini and Orbit 16. Instant bilayers - just add protein.

Agenda
"Automated formation of bilayer microarrays for single molecule detection with biological nanopores"

Dr. Gerhard Baaken, Ionera GmbH

"Investigating ion channel properties with the Orbit mini"
Dr. Mohamed Kreir, Application Scientist, Nanion Technologies

Introduction and moderation: Dr. Cecilia Farre, Marketing Director, Nanion Technologies

SIGN UP FOR THE WEBINAR HERE!

Orbits V1 flat 250pxThis webinar covers the use of the lipid bilayer platforms from Nanion: the Orbit16 and the Orbit mini for characterization of membrane proteins like ion channels, bacterial porins and biological nanopores. Both bilayer systems support high quality low noise recordings, but differ in throughput capabilities and experimental features. The Orbit16, introduced in 2012 is a device for efficient formation of 16 lipid bilayers simultaneously, allowing for parallel bilayer-reconstitution of ion channels and nanopores. Lipid bilayer arrays are automatically formed by remotely actuated painting. Orbit 16 has proven to be a versatile device for research and scientific applications which is reflected by numerous publication in high rank journals such as Science, Nature, Nano Letters, ACS Nano etc. The Orbit mini, introduced in 2015, is a smaller system, allowing low noise, high bandwidth recordings from 4 bilayers simultaneously. Orbit mini supports temperature-controlled experiments, allowing both active cooling and heating, a benefit when investigating thermo-sensitive channels such as TRPA1 or TRPV1, which will be shown in this webinar. Micro Electrode Cavity Array chips (MECA chips, Ionera Technologies GmbH, Freiburg) are the core of both devices. The MECA chips have successfully been validated with a wide variety of different ion channels and pores including KcsA, gramicidin, α-hemolysin, Kv- and Nav-channels etc. In this webinar the basics of the MECA technology will be explained and its applications will be shown in detail. Join this webinar and see how these outstanding platforms can add up to your work: Orbit 16 and Orbit mini!
