General description

The Millicell® ERS-2 (Electrical Resistance System) reliably measures membrane potential and resistance of epithelial cells in culture. This device qualitatively measures cell monolayer health and quantitatively measures cell confluence. A silver/silver chloride (Ag/AgCl) pellet on each electrode tip measures voltage. Due to the small size of the electrodes, you can easily measure transepithelial voltage and the resistance of cells grown on microporous membranes. Accessories include a replacement (fixed) electrode set, adjustable electrode set and a specialized electrode set for use with Millicell-96 cell culture insert plates.

Features & Benefits:
- Portable instrument that fits into laminar flow hoods
- Measurements do not compromise sterility or damage cells on the membrane
- Widely cited and recommended in epithelial cell culture protocols

Measurement of Transepithelial Electrical Resistance (TEER), Cell Monolayer Health Assessment, Quantitative Measurement of Confluence
