BioRad Gene Pulser II RF module
The RF Gene Pulser module, the latest addition to the Gene Pulser II electroporation family, permits the user to electroporate samples using either square or sinusoidal waves. Electroporation is a process whereby the membrane of a cell is temporarily destabilized in specific regions by exposure to high intensity electric field pulses. During this destabilization period, the cell membrane is highly permeable to exogenous molecules present in the surrounding media. Electroporation can thus be regarded as a massive micro-injection technique that is used to inject anywhere from one cell to millions of cells with specific biological molecules (typically DNA or proteins). These transformed molecules are then used as tools to unravel key issues concerning the control and expression of cell growth and development.
All of the equipment we sell is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.
