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.

What method can I use to fix my HL-60 cells as shown in your optimized protocol?

The cells which are shown in the HL-60 optimized protocol are living cells and not fixed cells. However a good method for fixation of GFP is to use 3.5%-4% Paraformaldehyde in PBS. Please keep in mind that the fixation method is dependant on what you...

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...

What is the advantage of the 96-well Shuttle Device over common lipofection, especially in a high throughput framework?

Several primary cells of high research relevance can simply not be transfected at relevant efficiencies and viabilities using lipofection. The same holds true for many suspension cell lines which are often used for protein production. These difficult...

What are the contents of a 96-well Shuttle Kit?

As the system will most likely be used for high-throughput approaches we provide plates which are pre-equipped with 96-well Nucleocuvette™ modules (2x8). In addition to that, the 96-well Shuttle solution, the supplement, and the pmaxGFP™ are also...

What is the advantage of the Nucleofector Technology over common electroporation (systems)?

High cell viability and high transfection efficiency with the Nucleofection™ Technology are the most prominent features. Nucleofection™, i.e., the transfer of DNA into the nucleus and not only the cytosol, is essential when working with non-dividing...

Is your pmaxGFP control vector supplied with the Nucleofector Kits suitable for stable expression?

No. This vector is only supplied in our Nucleofector™ Kits as a positive control and cannot be used for selection because it does not contain a mammalian selection marker. The only resistance gene expressed by this vector is kanamycin which is only...

Is it possible to pre-plate substrates when using the 96-well Shuttle for Nucleofection?

Yes, pre-plating of substrates like siRNA and subsequent storage at -20°C is possible.

What kind of protocol you recommend for stimulation of human T cells?

For getting the results we present in our datasheet, we recommend the follwing strategy: Cells should be stimulated and cultivated for 3 days before Nucleofection, preferentially on plates coated with 1 µg/ml anti-CD3 and 2 µg/ml anti-CD28 antibody....

Do you have any recommended methods for detaching human monocytes from the plate for assaying or before Nucleofection?

We have had good results by incubating the cells in ice cold PBS for 10 minutes and then rinsing the plates. Alternatively, the cells can be detached without a medium change by gently pipetting the cell suspension up and down. Our experience has also...
