Abstract

This work presents a microfluidic planar patch-clamp system suitable for laboratory usage without high entry threshold as the traditional pipette technique. Our previously developed hourglass-shaped aperture integrated with simple mi-crofluidic system available for whole-cell recording on HIT-T15, CHO-K1, and HEK-293T cell lines. Endogenous outward rectifier and A-type potassium currents were measured from HEK-293T. Extracellular solution are exchangeable up to six different solutions for ion channel interrogation. The fastest extracellular solution exchange rate demonstrated on HEK cells was within 500ms. The lab-use microfluidic planar patch-clamp system is believed to serve as a practical mi-crodevice for general laboratory usage.
