Transepithelial Electrophysiology

Core Scientist: Wayne Lencer, MD


Access to instrumentation for transepithelial electrophysiology and flux studies (Ussing chambers and voltage clamp modified for tissue and cell culture and interfaced to computer controlled voltage clamp and digital analysis) is available to membership as needed.

Access for HDDC members is allowed after one-on-one training on the basics of transepithelial electrical measurements and use of the equipment by Core C staff, and after a satisfactory period of supervised use to assure competence. Technical assistance is provided as necessary on an individual basis.

Access to this service is free of charge.
