Tethered membranes are lipid bilayers that are used as model cell membranes for a wide range of biophysical and physiological research. 


SDx manufactures a tethering foundation chemically attached to a thin gold film that acts as an inert base and electrode. A selection of natural or synthetic lipids can then be added to create a stable bilayer that models the properties of cell membranes for the purpose of ion channel, toxin and membrane studies using electrical or fluorescent measures.
