High-throughput screening for in vitro potency evaluation of cardiac ion channel inhibitors on the FLIPR Tetra® System

Early detection and elimination of new chemical entities with cardiac or hERG liability could substantially improve drug safety and minimize the cost of development. In this webinar, we will highlight validating ion channel inhibition using cell lines.

Learning Objectives:

- Optimize and validate a robust cell-based hERG fluorescence assay using the FLIPR® Potassium Assay Kit, a thallium-sensitive fluorescence dye to directly measure ion influx

- Run inhibition assays with voltage-gated sodium channels (NaV1.5) and L-type voltage-gated calcium channels (CaV1.2) using FLIPR® Membrane Potential Dye and FLIPR® Calcium 6 Dye, respectively

- Demonstrate high-throughput, early stage in vitro compound and potency assessment with comparable results from electrophysiological recording data
