We here report pharmacological data (EC50 and IC50 values, tests for state-dependency of blockers and steady-state inactivation characteristics) from eight different types of voltage- and ligand-gated ion channels using the automated QPatch 16 system. The data obtained were in accordance with published literature values (not shown). We conclude that the QPatch technology enables fast and reliable characterization of electrophysiological ion channel properties.
