Lonza Nucleofector 4D Core & X-unit

“The NucleofectorTM Technology uses a specific combination of optimized electrical parameters and cell type-specific solutions which enables transfer of a molecule directly into the cells’ nucleus. Due to this independency from cell proliferation, it allows for efficient transfection of even non-dividing primary cells (like resting T cells or neurons) and also speeds up expression.” Click here for more information
