Hi there,

I have not done perforated patch, but have been whole-cell recording of
Ca-channel-currents from rat DRGs with Ba2+ as charge carrier. With those
I did not have 'serious' run down problems. An initial rundown usually
stabilized after a few minutes. I found that the run-down also depended on
external factors, especially temperature, since our lab was not 
air-conditioned. Also high temperatures (above 25 centigrades) generally
affected seal-stability negatively. Hope that helps.

Good Luck, Leo
