The Helios Gene Gun is a convenient handheld device that provides rapid and direct transfection into a range of targets in vivo. The unit uses an adjustable low-pressure helium pulse to sweep DNA-, RNA-, or biomaterial-coated gold microcarriers from the inner wall of a small plastic cartridge directly into target cells.
Key Features • Provides easy-to-use, rapid, versatile gene delivery independent of target cell type • Facilitates both transient and stable expression • Requires only small amounts of DNA and cells; no carrier DNA needed • Enables codelivery of more than one plasmid • Allows transfer of large DNA fragments • Targets intracellular gene delivery to many cells • Works for both in vitro and in vivo transformation • Delivers no extraneous genes or proteins
