Ion Channel Screening Assays

Ion channels regulate a wide range of physiological processes including rapid electrical signaling, fluid, hormone and transmitter secretion, and proliferation. They are, therefore, considered common targets for both toxins and therapeutics. Ion channels are not only important drug targets, but are also generally relevant for drug safety. Recent developed technologies and instrumentation have provided new opportunities for ion channel screening that enables higher throughput, extended information content, and access to novel ion channel targets. The assay results can then be used to predict compound effects in cells and tissues.

Creative BioMart provides a wide range of ion channel assays to quickly and accurately provide results for drug discovery and development. Our assays are established based on globally recognized standards.
