Allowing cryopreservation of cells for Nucleofection™.

Lonza has introduced Nucleofector™ PLUS Supplements, a new add-on product for use in combination with Nucleofector™ Kits.

These specialized supplements which are used instead of the standard kit supplement allow cryopreservation of freshly isolated or harvested cells in Nucleofector™ Solution.

“By decoupling cell harvesting and transfection, Nucleofection™ Experiments can be done at the scientist’s convenience. Cells can be collected, stored and are ready-to-use at a later time, and deliver transfection results comparable to fresh cells. Larger cell batches can be cryopreserved so that researchers can avoid batch-to-batch variances in transfection results. Thus, Nucleofector™ PLUS Supplements can make whole experimental programs more consistent.” explains Dr. Herbert Mueller-Hartmann, Head of R&D Discovery Technologies.

Nucleofection™ is a transfection technology that was first introduced into the market in 2001. It is based on the unique combination of electrical parameters and cell-type specific solutions.

It is known as the first efficient non-viral transfection method for primary neural cells and has been stated in over 300 peer-reviewed publications as the method of choice for transfection of primary neurons.
