The system includes a main unit, a ShockPod™ cuvette chamber, and accessory modules. It allows universal electroporation of all cell types, from primary and stem cells to bacteria and yeast. There are i) preset protocols, including the most common mammalian and bacterial cell types; ii) choice of programs for preset protocols, optimization protocols, manual operation, and/or user protocols; iii) collection of electroporation protocols for every cell type including primary, immortal, and bacterial cells and iv) data management which enables storage and recall of parameters used in the previous 100 experiments, useful for troubleshooting. This equipment is essential for molecular biology experiments that form part of my research program.
The Gene Pulser Xcell system is a modular electroporation system for transfecting every cell type.
