Electroporation Cuvettes

ElectroporationThe Cell Projects™ range of HiMaX Electroporation cuvettes are designed to maximise molecular electroporation and electrofusion efficiencies for bacteria, yeast, insect, plant and mammalian cells. Each batch of cuvettes has to undergo rigorous testing at several stages during the manufacturing process for engineering tolerances, biocompatibility and sterility, prior their being quality tested for optimal and reproducible impedance measurements.

  • Compatibility
    The cuvettes are compatible with most electroporation systems
  • Bio-Controlled
    All batches are checked to optimise the Bio and Transfection compatibility, with stringent use of high quality grade polycarbonate and high grade chemicals to ensure consistent uniform pulse generation and improved gene transfer.
  • High Tolerance Moulding
    The moulding process ensures extremely stringent tolerances so that the electrodes have a consistent gap and parallel configuration. The electrodes are also cleaned chemically and physically to fully optimise the cuvette for high transformation efficiencies.
  • Cap Design
    The cap has been designed to improve aseptic handling techniques, while the lip and positive seal reduces potential aerosol and contamination issues.
  • Size Range and Colour Coding
    Available in 1 mm, 2 mm and 4 mm gap sizes with individual coloured caps.
  • Sterile Packaged
    Every cuvette is guaranteed sterile, packed using gamma irradiation and has an simple tear wrapper for easy access when you need it.
  • Low Dead Volumes
    All 1 mm and 2 mm cuvettes have a tapered V bottom so that reduced sample volumes can be used while aiding sample pick up and minimising dead volumes.

ElectroBuffer Improves Eukaryotic Transfection Efficiencies

ElectroBuffer is designed specially to improve your transfection efficiencies (in some cases by over 30 fold) whilst reducing survival rates post-electroporation. The medium is designed for eukaryotic cells and generally gives significant improvements over using PBS or standard culture medium.

The medium is formulated to reduce the 'cell trauma' during the electroporation and to provide critical nutrients to speed the recovery and growth phases following the cell wall destabilisation.

  • Improves transfection and survival rates
  • Reduces cell trauma
  • Full kit format
  • Simple to use

The ElectroBuffer Kit is available in various sizes:

  1. Trial kit contains enough material for 6 transfections
  2. Standard kit which contains all necessary material for 24 or more electroporations
