Cardiac arrhythmias of both atrial and ventricular origin are an important feature of cardiovascular disease. Novel anti-arrhythmic therapies are required to overcome current drug limitations related to effectiveness and pro-arrhythmia risk in some contexts. Cardiomyocyte culture models provide a high-throughput platform forscreening anti-arrhythmic compounds, but comparative information about electrophysiological properties of commonly used types of cardiomyocyte preparations is lacking.Standardization of cultured cardiomyocyte microelectrode array (MEA) experimentation is required for its application as a high-throughput platform for anti-arrhythmic drug development. The aim of this study ..
