Overview

Transfection Protocol Library


The Transfection Protocol Online Library contains protocols obtained from the literature, developed by Bio-Rad scientists, or submitted by scientists like you. browse protocols to view our library and find your starting point.

Bio-Rad Laboratories has helped scientists deliver molecules into cells for over 35 years. Instruments, including the Gene Pulser® series of electroporators, the MicroPulser electroporator, and the Helios® gene gun and PDS-1000/He biolistic systems, have been used successfully to transfect prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, including plant and animal cells. These transfection instruments are cited extensively in the literature. Our chemically mediated methods include lipid-based transfection reagents — TransFectin lipid reagent for delivery of plasmid DNA and siLentFect lipid reagent for siRNA delivery.

Cuvette Selection Guide
Electroporation Cuvette Selection Guide
0.4 cm gap (blue cap) Wider gap for low field strength, used for mammalian and other eukaryotic cells
0.2 cm gap (green cap) Narrow gap for high field strength, used for yeast, bacterial, and eukaryotic cells
0.1 cm gap (brown cap) Narrowest gap and shallow bottom for small sample volumes (40–80 µl) and very high field strength, used for yeast and bacterial transformation
Schematic of Cuvettes

Gene Pulser®/Micropulser™ electroporation cuvettes are high-quality electroporation cuvettes which enable reproducible and consistent gene delivery to valuable transfection samples.

Features and Benefits

  • Universal — compatible with all Bio-Rad electroporators and competitor electroporation systems
  • Sterile — thoroughly washed to eliminate trace inhibitor materials, then sterilized and individually wrapped
  • Reliable — sturdy, seamless construction with gap widths set to exacting tolerances for consistent performance
  • Reproducible — inspected at several points in the manufacturing process to guarantee reproducible results
  • Multiple configurations — available in three gap widths: 0.4, 0.2, and 0.1 cm, to deliver the proper field strength to a variety of cell types

Cuvette Gap Width and Sample Type

  • 0.1 cm — E. coli, bacteria, yeast
  • 0.2 cm — E. coli, bacteria, yeast, mammalian cells, including primary and stem cells
  • 0.4 cm — Mammalian cells, including primary and stem cells, and plant protoplasts
Gap width, cm 0.1, 0.2, 0.4
