  • Application Area: nucleoporation

"Our Nuclefector is used to transfect a wide range of cells, ranging from primary cells to cell lines. Nice efficiency for siRNA transfection into both primary cells and cell lines. On the other hand, if electroporation of DNA plasmids is efficient for cells lines, it is rather limited for primary cells (especially neurons and dendritic cells). A bit expensive, but really user friendly."

"I use the Nuclefector Kit L and have found it to be simple and practical. It is the primary culture of rat cortical neurons. However it is expensive when you have to use for large scale."

"Very difficult to optimize for your cell types. All assistance is "classified"- Unable to discuss with TS & D staff."

"Good results with primary neurons. However, very difficult to troubleshoot because it is a 'Black Box'."

"The equipment is easy to use and there is good technical support available."

Review date: 21 Sep 2006 | The Nucleofector Device
The Nucleofector technology is a highly efficient non-viral method for transfection. It is based on two components: the Nucleofector Device that delivers unique electrical parameters, and Nucleofector Kits that contain cell-type-specific Nucleofector Solutions.

The electrical parameters of the Nucleofector are different from any other commercially available electroporation device. Each electrical setting is displayed as a distinct program which has been adapted to the requirements of a particular cell type. As the electrical settings are pre-programmed into the Nucleofector, optimization of the electrical parameters by the user is not necessary.

The device weighs only 2.6 kg and is conveniently sized so that it easily fits under a sterile hood, which greatly facilitates sterile work with cells.
