Abstract

A temporal logarithmic concentration generator in a microfluidic device is presented to integrate with planar patch-clamp chips for dose-response assays on ion channels. We propose a serial dilution principle to generate logarithmic concentrations, and the outlet concentration can be dynamically altered by different combination of valve actuations. Dose-response assays were performed on inhibitory activity of potassium channels of human embryonic kidney cells by tetraethylammonium solutions. Resulted IC50 and Hill slope reveal excellent agreement with assays from manual prepared drug concentrations showing the practicability of the present approach. It should be a great advantage for rapid drug/compound investigations for cellular studies.
