Bilayer lipid membranes (BLMs) are excellent platforms to study ion channels in a functional environment, and for drug screening assays. However, conventional electrophysiological BLM approaches do not meet the requirements for high throughput experiments due to the large volumes utilized, and the extensive manual procedures involved. In that context, microfluidics is a promising format to develop new platforms for high throughput electrophysiological measurements on ion channels incorporated in BLMs.
