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 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 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...

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....

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...

Are there any effects on the differentiation of neural stem cells following Nucleofection?

The ability of transfected rat or mouse neural stem cells to be subsequently differentiated into a variety of cell types is well documented in: Olig2 Overexpression Induces the In Vitro Differentiation of Neural Stem Cells into Mature...

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...

Can calcium influx issues affect viability of human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (hMSC)?

Yes. When cells are transfected using Nucleofection™, transient pores are generated in the cell membrane. Generally, these pores disappear within 15 minutes of transfection, but if cells are plated immediately after Nucleofection™ in media that...

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.
