Gene Pulser Xcell™ Electroporation Systems

The Gene Pulser Xcell™ system is a modular electroporation system for transfecting every cell type. The system includes a main unit, a ShockPod™ cuvette chamber, and your choice of accessory modules: the capacitance extender (CE module) and the pulse controller (PC module)

Features and Benefits

·         Universal electroporation — transfects all cell types, from primary and stem cells to bacteria and yeast

·         Preset protocols — include the most common mammalian and bacterial cell types

·         Flexibility — choice of programs for preset protocols, optimization protocols, manual operation, and/or user protocols

·         Protocol library — collection of electroporation protocols for every cell type including primary, immortal, and bacterial cells

·         Data management — enables storage and recall of parameters used in the previous 100 experiments, useful for troubleshooting

·         Reproducibility — uses PulseTrac™ circuitry and arc-protection features to ensure reproducibility and sample protection
