Mouse Embryonic Fibroblast Starter Nucleofector™ Kit

Catalog #: VPD-1006
For determination which of the two NucleofectorTM Kits is best suited for efficient transfection of a specific mouse embryonic fibroblast clone in NucleofectorTM I/II/2b Device
 363.00 CHF

Product Overview

The NucleofectorTM 2b Device (or older generations I or II) works cell type specific kits, each of them dedicated to an individual primary cell. Due to significant diversity between different MEF clones, we have developed two NucleofectorTM Kits (1 and 2) and an easy-to-use NucleofectorTM Starter Kit. The Mouse Embryonic Fibroblast NucleofectorTM Starter Kit is used to determine which of the two NucleofectorTM Kits is best suited for transfecting a specific primary mouse embyonic fibroblast (MEF) clone in NucleofectorTM 2b Device.

The respective cell type-specific Optimized Protocol or recommendation is available under "Instructions" or in our knowledge database. In this Optimized Protocol the best Nucleofection conditions are indicated. In addition, we share our experience and knowledge for treatment of this cell type.



  • High transfection efficiencies for primary cells
  • Cells maintain functionality post transfection


  • Transfection of cell numbers in the range of 2 × 105 to 2 × 107 cells 
  • Low-throughput transfection in single cuvette format
