Innovations in Electrophysiology


Organoid Meets Microelectrode Array (MEA) – Accelerating Drug Discovery and Development

Date (Berlin Time): Wed, Jan 24, 2024

In today’s fast paced research environment, drug testing, regulatory requirements, and alternative methods are at the forefront of neuroscience research. In this webinar, Dr. Sven Schönecker discusses the latest in 3D Mesh MEA’s, its ability for a more true-to-life system for studying organoids, and the versatility of the well-established MEA2100 system from Multi Channel Systems (MCS), an affiliate of Harvard Bioscience (HB).

Key Topics Include:

  • Why organoids? – Advancements and alternative models to support the 3R’s (replace, reduce, refine) of animal models
  • How did we get here? – Understand the challenges of 2D electrodes and the introduction of the 3D Mesh MEA
  • Benefits of the platform – Electrophysiology simplified…simple integration and flexibility using a universal, well-established platform
  • It’s all possible – Cell culture, slices, organoids, implantation, and beyond
