What is the Lipid Bilayer method?

The lipid bilayer is an electrophysiological technique for investigating the function of ion channels, porins, and other pore-forming molecular complexes. The purpose is to study in a control environment ion channels’ behavior at the single molecule level in artificial membranes.

Which product is right for you?



A compact Lipid Bilayer kit for accurate single-channel recordings and teaching activities. It includes one eONE amplifier and all the parts required in a single kit to study ion-channels functional activity.

Nanopore Reader

Miniaturized and portable read-out device with reusable flow-cells for ultra noise recordings of events happening in biological pores.  The flow cell (BLMchip) measures only 15x25x6 mm and is comprised of two 60 µl chambers.
