What antibiotic concentration should I use for selecting stable transfectants?

We highly recommend to perform a titration for G418 in a range of 0,1 mg/ml to 1,5 mg/ml; in serum-free culture expand range down to 20 µg/ml).Choose the concentration which is 0,1 or 0,2 mg/ml above the one which shows complete cell death as...

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 level....

How much DNA should I use in my Nucleofection® Reaction to obtain stable clones?

You should use the amount of DNA recommended in the optimized protocol for transient transfection. If obtaining a very high number of clones is important for your experiments, you can try increasing the amount of DNA. For further tips see our...

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...

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.

Does the GFP sequence in the pmaxGFP control plasmid has a stop codon?

Yes. The coding sequence ends with a stop codon (TGA/UGA).

In my Nucleofection Experiment I see lower expression with my IRES construct in comparison with you pmax-GFP control. Do you have any information about the different expression profiles?

The original attenuation of the IRES sequence was performed to allow for a greater difference between the expression levels of the upstream gene of interest and the downstream reporter gene. If the downstream reporter gene, the product of less than...
