Electrophysiology Facility

Electrophysiology Facility

The Electrophysiology Facility (e-phac) offers expertise, instrumentation and support in the area of in-vitro electrophysiology to researchers from UZH and associated institutions. We combine in-vitro electrophysiology with the advantages of image-based techniques to study bioelectrical signaling in cells and tissues. Moreover, we provide a broad range of electrophysiological techniques to study non-excitable cells. We train researchers in patch clamp and support research groups with in-vitro electrophysiology in the context of scientific collaborations.
