About Qwane Biosciences
Qwane Biosciences SA develops and sells Micro-Electrode Array
(MEA) biochips for basic research in electrophysiology,
secondary drug screening and safety pharmacology applications.
MEA biochips are devices comprising micro-fabricated metal
electrodes that allow the direct measurement of electrical activity
from neurons and cardiomyocytes. The large number of electrodes per
well enable the detailed study of network and signal propagation
characteristics. Qwane Biosciences provides unique 3D tip-shaped
MEA biochips best suited for monitoring of acute tissue slice
preparations. Read more
