Perform Efficient Electroporation with Bio-Rad’s MXCell and Save Time, Money and Effort

 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 04-01-2010

As discussed in an earlier post on siRNA delivery, Bio-Rad’s Gene Pulser MXCell Electroporator is a powerful tool for biotechnology labs involved in delivering siRNA into difficult to transfect cells. In this technical note, biotechnology experts from the University of Rochester demonstrate how the MXCell can be used to simultaneously optimize electroporation conditions in multiple cell types thereby saving time, reagents and effort.
