Microbiology is home to a wide variety of specialized techniques, including electroporation.
Electroporation, less commonly referred to as electropermeabilization, is a physical transfection method that applies specific high-voltage electrical pulses to eukaryotic cells in a sample to increase the permeability of the cellular membrane. It is most commonly used in molecular biology research.
The technique is tremendously useful for allowing DNA, pDNA (plasmid DNA), RNA, mRNA (messenger RNA), RNPs (ribonucleoprotein), and proteins, as well as pharmaceuticals, and various chemicals to be introduced and integrated into the cell’s structure. Additionally, electroporation is also an excellent technique when difficult-to-transfect cells—primary and stem cells—are the target.
The appliances that were created to perform this process are called electroporators, or electroporation systems.
An electroporation cuvette, designed with a unique chamber specifically for maximum quality and convenience during electroporation, is used as the container for the sample. The cuvette generally has electrodes placed on its sides, which facilitate the current’s interaction with the sample inside. After the current has finished, a small volume of a liquid medium is added to the sample.
Medical & Laboratory Applications, Pulse Types, & More
Electroporation systems are always used for biomedical applications, with many different industries capitalizing on these benefits to fulfill their specific needs. This includes medical, laboratory, animal studies, and more. As well, electroporators rely on a variety of pulse types to perform electroporation, some of which we will cover below.

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
