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.

Are your Nucleofector Solutions checked for RNase activity during your QC process?

Yes. We do test the Solutions with a real time RT-PCR based assay. This assay basically measures the quantity of an RNA template after incubation in our solution. In case there is RNAse contamination the template would be digested which would be...

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....

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 kind of buffer do you recommend for resuspending my siRNA?

Please use the buffer that is recommended by your siRNA manufacturer.

What stock concentration of Propidium Iodide does Lonza use for FACS analysis?

We use a stock concentration of 100 µg/ml in PBS. This is diluted 1:300 – 1:400 into the sample.

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...

Can calcium influx issues affect viability or differentiation in Stem Cells after Nucleofection?

When cells are transfected by 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 medias that contain high...
