4D-Nucleofector® Y Unit

Catalog #: AAF-1003Y

Enables the direct Nucleofection® of cells in adherence in 24-well culture plates


Product Overview

 Adherent Nucleofection® Using the Y Unit

Electroporation-based methods have so far required cells to be in suspension for transfection. The Nucleofector® Technology entered a new era and allows direct Nucleofection® Reactions of cells in adherence. Cells which typically grow in adherence in cell culture, can be kept and transfected by Nucleofector® Technology in their physiological state. The Y Unit of the 4D-Nucleofector® System works with disposable conductive polymer Dipping Electrode Arrays that can be inserted into standard 24-well culture plates for Nucleofection® Procedure.
The 4D-Nucleofector® Y Unit is one of the four functional modules of the 4D-Nucleofector® System.
There are cell type-specific Optimized Protocols or recommendations available in our knowledge database. In these Optimized Protocols the best Nucleofection® Conditions are indicated. In addition, we share our experience and knowledge for treatment of individual cell types.
