What is the molecular weight of your control pmaxGFP plasmid?

The molecular weight is approximately 2.3x10e6 g/mol based on the average MW of a base pair being 660 g/mol.

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...

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 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.

I want to stimulate human primary T-cells with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28. Do you have a detailed protocol for this?

For optimal stimulation of the transfected cells we recommend coating 96-wells plates for stimulation [Nunc Immuno™ Plate C96 Maxi Sorp™, Cat. No. 430 341] with 50 µl of a solution of anti- CD3 antibody [OKt 3; eBioscience, Cat. No. 14-0037-82; final...

Is there a reason why in our Nucleofector Protocols for Primary Human Chondrocytes we include FCS in the pronase and collagenase solutions for preparation of chondrocytes?

Yes, even though this may sound odd since serum is generally known to inactivte proteases. We recommend it in this case, however, because the incubation times are quite long and the cells are stressed by the procedure. The amounts of enzymes should...
