Bio-Rad Introduces Gene Pulser MXCELL Electroporation System
Product News Nov 01, 2007
Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. has announced the introduction of the Gene Pulser MXcell™ electroporation system. The MXcell system is the latest addition to Bio-Rad’s suite of electroporation technologies and is designed for researchers working with mammalian cells — in particular, primary cells and stem cells or other difficult to transfect cells.
The MXcell system is fully programmable and can deliver up to 24 different electroporation protocols in a single 96-well plate in two minutes or less. The MXcell system paired with the Gene Pulser electroporation buffer provides researchers a way to optimize electroporation conditions to maximize the use of their cells and samples. The system can also be used as rapid screening tool for the delivery of siRNA into any type of mammalian cell line.
The MXcell system features disposable 12-, 24- and 96-well plates offering options for high-throughput, replicated optimization, as well as multiple lab-scale transfections in a single plate. The software has gradient programming and pre-set optimization protocols for plate set-up.
