Cytocybernetics: Rapid and Reliable HERG Screening

The HERG Assay
HERG channel assay provides information on the ability of a compound to block the
HERG channel, which is the alpha subunit underlying the delayed repolarization
current, IKr.
Screening Services

HERG Quick Check:
This assay is for simple early stage feedback. Compounds are tested against
against HERG1A. Data is obtained for two compound  concentrations in two cells.

Advanced HERG Assays:
This is an in depth assay, with a full range of compound concentrations. Depending
on Customer requirements, the report can include dose-reposonse relationship, use
dependence, models of HERG block.
