Oocyte Perfusion Chamber (AutoMate)
  • Small working volume (< 20 µl)
  • Fast solution exchange


Expression of recombinant receptors in oocytes has been a favorite choice for researchers to assess the pharmacology of signal transduction pathways. Since the oocytes are 1 - 1.5 mm in diameter, however, fast solution exchange around the oocyte was difficult.  After several years of electrophysiological research, we have designed a Xenopus oocyte perfusion chamber for use in automated and unattended experiments. Combined with an automated perfusion system, this chamber allows researchers to obtain dose-response data quickly and easily.
