A microfabricated silicon device for studying artificial lipid bilayer systems is described. The experimental apparatus emloyed enable the simultaneous acquisition of electrical and optical data. Reconstitution of channel-forming proteins into an artificial lipid bilayer formed across an aperture in the silicon device is demonstrated.
