Neuroscience

Solutions for studying the nervous system

Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system which is composed of billions of neurons. The cause for many neurological diseases can be traced to physiological abnormalities in the functioning of neurons and in many cases ion channels. In order to better understand the function of the nervous system, it is important to study electrical properties and morphological changes of neurons. Molecular Devices offers powerful electrophysiology and imaging tools that help address the fundamental questions at this level. Axon patch-clamp instruments have been widely used in laboratories for over 30 years to study the electrical properties of neurons. Imaging tools include the MetaMorph Microscopy Automation & Image Analysis Software which is the industry standard for automated microscope acquisition, device control, and image analysis.
