HTS Calcium Imaging

Dr. Udo Kraushaar
Group Leader Electrophysiology

Live-cell Ca2+  imaging with high spatio-temporal resolution or in HTS format (96/384-well)

Unlock unparalleled insights into the intricate cellular dynamics of neurons and cardiomyocytes with our cutting-edge calcium imaging services!

We are thrilled to offer a comprehensive suite of advanced tools and techniques to investigate neuro- and cardiotoxicity, as well as in vitro safety pharmacology.


Our services

  • Safety profiling (effects of seizures on neurons, arrhythmia on cardiac cells)
  • Compound MoA
  • Intracellular Ca2+ handling
  • Subcellular Ca2+ handling

We use different models for studies that require live cell imaging approaches. Rat/mouse cortex, chicken cardiomyocytes, hiPSC-derived neurons with or without astrocytes, hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes are a few we have to mention. In case such studies might help you with your scientific project, let us know.
