Can I apply more than one program (transfection condition) per plate with the 96-well Shuttle System?

With the 96-well Shuttle™ Device, it is possible to apply up to 96 different programs (transfection conditions) per 96-well Nucleocuvette™ Plate. Therefore, optimization of Nucleofection™ Conditions for a particular cell line can be easily performed...

What cell number do I need per well when using the 96-well Shuttle Device or the 4D-Nucleocuvette Stripes?

The cell number is very much dependent on the cell type you use. For high throughput Nucleofection™, we usually start with one fifth of the optimal amount recommended for the standard Nucleofection™ in the 100µl cuvette. Currently the absolute cell...

What is the amount of DNA needed per well when using the 96-well Shuttle Device?

The amount depends on the cell type and on the DNA construct. As a rule of thumb 400 ng of DNA per well should be applied. However, for some cells or constructs even 100 ng may be sufficient.

What is the amount of siRNA needed per Nucleofection Reaction?

When performing siRNA-mediated knockdown experiments it is advisable to conduct a dose-response (concentration) analysis to determine the minimum siRNA concentration necessary for sufficient target knockdown on the mRNA, protein, or functional...

Which pipette tips are compatible with the 96-well Shuttle Nucleocuvette Plates?

We recommend using special tips, e.g. epT.I.P.S™ (Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany) or TallTips™ (Matrix Technologies, Hudson, NH, USA). You can contact our Scientific Support Team for a list of compatible tips, including tips for pipetting robots.

Can I freeze the 96-well Nucleocuvette Plates?

Yes. Freezing of the plates at -20°C does not alter their properties.

Can I integrate the 96-well Shuttle Device into a liquid handling system?

Yes. The 96-well Shuttle™ Device is designed in such a way that it is addressable by robot grippers. Furthermore, the software contains the required interface to be connected with the LHS software. However, the practical implementation for each...

Can I use the Nucleofector 2b Solutions and Optimized Protocols with the 4D-Nucleofector X-Unit or the 96-well Shuttle Device?

No. The 4D-Nucleofector and 96-well Shuttle™ System uses specifically optimized electrical parameters and solutions. Five different 4D-Nucleofector or 96-well Shuttle™ Solutions are available for primary cells. For cell lines, three different...

Can I use a Nucleofector I or Nucleofector 2b Device together with the 96-well Shuttle Device?

No, the 96-well Shuttle™ only works in conjunction with the Nucleofector™ IIs Device or our 4D-Nucleofector™ Device.

Is it possible to use different substrates (e.g. siRNA duplexes) with the 96-well Shuttle Device?

Yes. Transfection can be done with any substrate AND under exactly the same conditions. For example, the same conditions (96-well Shuttle™ Solution and program) are used for siRNA transfection or shRNA vectors. This greatly facilitates the...
