A microfluidic platform is presented for experimentation on planar cell membrane models and membrane proteins, using a combination of electrical and optical techniques. The applicability of the device is demonstrated for in-depth studies on membrane properties; confocal imaging of phase separation in ternary membrane systems; single protein measurements; and indirect assessment of membrane property alterations using the sensitivity of gramicidin to its environment.
