Axon Instrument's Clampex Data Acquistion Graphic Interface
As researchers use patch clamp technology to probe ever deeper into the subtle phenomena of cell physiology, they leave behind the macrocosm of human experience and enter the microcosm of the cell. The key to understanding these cellular phenomena, beyond or beneath the human senses, is to find ways of analyzing information that produce visually accessible results.

The problem of extracting meaningful data from recorded observations has always been a time-consuming process that may be separated by days or even weeks from the initial period of observation. That is why an effort has been made to introduce powerful new tools that can retrieve and analyze data simultaneously, compressing this arduous process into a single stage.

Axon Instruments, long active in developing more effective acquisition software, recently unveiled Clampex 7.0, to the world of virtual data acquisition instruments. One of the first programs...
