Video Interview // IonOptix MultiCell System

During the 2023 American Physiological Society Summit hosted in Long Beach, California, I was able to sit down with Joe Soughayer, Business Development Manager at IonOptix, to discuss innovations in instrumentation that are enabling groundbreaking strides in physiological research.

Joe spoke about the MultiCell System, which offers fully automated, high speed data acquisition from hundreds of myocytes per hour. The IonOptix MultiCell System is a first of its kind high throughput, high content simultaneous quantitative calcium and quantitative kinetic analysis of contractility in cardiomyocytes. Learn more about this innovative system in the video above.

Quick Facts

  • Measure from hundreds of cells at a time
  • Automated cell finding and recording
  • Light and temperature controlled
  • Fast measurement at 250Hz
  • Real time data acquisition
  • Fast motorized objective leaves the cell chamber stationary and stable
  • Higher throughput = greater accuracy, reproducibility, and confidence in your data

Learn more about the IonOptix MultiCell high-throughput calcium and contractility system and how you can benefit from more efficiency in your data acquisition and analysis, resulting in higher statistical power and confidence in your data.
