Gene Pulser Xcell™ Electroporation Systems

The Gene Pulser Xcell™ system is a modular electroporation system for transfecting every cell type. The system includes a main unit, a ShockPod™ cuvette chamber, and your choice of accessory modules: the capacitance extender (CE module) and the pulse controller (PC module)

Features and Benefits
  • Universal electroporation — transfects all cell types, from primary and stem cells to bacteria and yeast
  • Preset protocols — include the most common mammalian and bacterial cell types
  • Flexibility — choice of programs for preset protocols, optimization protocols, manual operation, and/or user protocols
  • Protocol library — collection of electroporation protocols for every cell type including primary, immortal, and bacterial cells
  • Data management — enables storage and recall of parameters used in the previous 100 experiments, useful for troubleshooting
  • Reproducibility — uses PulseTrac™ circuitry and arc-protection features to ensure reproducibility and sample protection
System Options
  • Gene Pulser Xcell total electroporation system (catalog #165-2660) — the complete electroporation system for transfection of both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells; includes both the CE module, and the PC module
  • Gene Pulser Xcell eukaryotic electroporation system (catalog #165-2661) — for the electroporation of most eukaryotic cells, including mammalian cells and plant protoplasts; includes the CE module
  • Gene Pulser Xcell microbial electroporation system (catalog #165-2662) — for the electroporation of bacteria and fungi, as well as other applications where high-voltage pulses are applied to samples of small volume; includes the PC module
More Information
  • Features modifiable delivery parameters including time constant, actual voltage applied, pulse interval, and pulse time, depending on the waveform (exponential or square) chosen
  • Provides a choice of programs for manual operation, preset protocols, user protocols, and an optimization protocol
  • Compatible with 0.1 cm, 0.2 cm, and 0.4 cm Gene Pulser®/Micropulser™ electroporation cuvettes
  • Compatible with any electroporation buffer, including Bio-Rad's Gene Pulser electroporation buffer
