Stem Cell Electroporation using Ingenio® Kits

Electroporate Stem Cells Efficiently and Cost-effectively with Ingenio® Kits and Solution

  • High Efficiency - Electroporate hard to transfect cells including stem cells and their derivatives
  • Compatibility - Use with most conventional electroporation devices including Lonza-Amaxa® Nucleofector® II, Bio-Rad® or Harvard BTX®
  • Cost Savings - Reduce research budget while maximizing results

Plasmid DNA Electroporation of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cells with Ingenio

Plasmid DNA Electroporation of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cells with Ingenio®. The Ingenio® Electroporation Kit was used to transfect 2 x 106 iPS cells on the Amaxa® Nucleofector® II Device. Cells were electroporated with 8 µg ZsGreen expressing plasmid (Clontech) in 100 µl and plated in 6-well plates at 0.33 x 106 cells/well. Cells were visualized 24 hours post-transfection and imaged under 4X objective with an Olympus IX71® Inverted Microscope. Images are (A) phase contrast, and (B) green fluorescence. Cells were also assayed 24 hours post-transfection on an Accuri® Cytometer. The histogram (C) shows unelectroporated cells (black line) compared to cells electroporated with plasmid using the Ingenio® Electroporation Kit (green line).

The Ingenio® Electroporation Kit is routinely used in our lab to transfect induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) via electroporation and yields extremely high transfection efficiency. The Ingenio® Kit is entirely compatible with the Amaxa® Nucleofector® and is also a much more cost effective solution.
