Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. Gene Pulser MXcell


Gene Pulser MXcell

The Gene Pulser MXcell™ plate-based electroporation system delivers molecules efficiently into mammalian cells — especially into primary and difficult-to-transfect cells. The Gene Pulser MXcell system can be used to electroporate as few as 105 cells by using a 96-well plate or as many as 106 to 107 cells in a 12-well plate or in a cuvette. The system's enhanced user interface contains preset protocols to easily adapt to new or existing transfection conditions.

  • Delivery of any molecule into primary and other mammalian cells — transfect siRNA, DNA, and other molecules in a completely open format
  • Preprogrammed protocols — designed for rapid optimization to increase transfection efficiency and viability of any mammalian cell type, including primary and difficult-to-transfect cells
  • Fully programmable — modify protocols for your specific needs to obtain better gene delivery
  • Choice of electroporation plate or cuvette — electroporate a limited number of primary cells or a larger number when scaling up
  • Fast pulse time — minimize cell handling
  • Protocols for primary and mammalian cells — browse Bio-Rad's expanding Transfection Protocol Library, which includes electroprotocols describing recommended starting conditions for most mammalian cells
  • Compatible with any electroporation buffer — use with Gene Pulser® electroporation buffer for efficient gene delivery while maintaining cell viability in mammalian cells
  • Built-in safety features — arc protection for detecting precise location of well arcing and resistor pulse modulation for controlling parallel resistance
