MicroPulser Electroporator

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.

The MicroPulser Electroporator is a simple yet versatile instrument that enables safe and reproducible transformation of bacteria, yeast, and other microorganisms.

Description

The MicroPulser Electroporator is a simple yet versatile instrument that enables safe and reproducible transformation of bacteria, yeast, and other microorganisms. Transformation efficiencies much higher than those obtained with chemical methods can be achieved.

Key Features

  • One-button pulse delivery, attached cuvette chamber, and rapid charge time for fast sample handling
  • Preset, optimized programs for commonly studied bacteria and fungi allow rapid program selection
  • Arc quenching (ARQ) system significantly reduces arcing, protecting against loss of valuable samples
  • Broad range of parameters for manual optimization. Manual programming allows voltage to be selected in a 200–3,000 V range with 10 V precision and allows pulse width to be selected in a 1.0–4.0 ms range with 0.1 ms precision
  • High-voltage 3,000 V capability yields improved efficiency in larger-volume cuvettes
  • Compact, space-saving design
  • Audible and visible pulse indicators
  • Time constant and actual volts displayed to monitor reproducibility.
