[Neuroscience] Series resistance and capacitance compensation in

We have an old HEKA EPC 7 patch clamp amplifier which we're using to
make whole cell recordings from medium spiny neurons in the striatum.
We HAVEN'T been compensating for capacitance or series resistance in our
A couple of questions:
1. Will this stuff up our membrane potential values during large current
steps (<1nA)? In what way?
2. Is there any legitimate way we can adjust our data post-hoc?
3. Will compensating make a difference in current clamp for our case?
The manual seems to indicate that it won't.. It doesn't do fast
