Mouse/Rat – Skin
To deliver genes into Mouse/Rat Skin by electroporation, we recommend:
This electrode is a tweezers-type electrode. One tweezers is a 5 x 10mm rectangular electrode and the other is three needles which look like a fork.
For your further information, some clients prefer to use the CUY650P electrode series for the same application. The CUY650P series is also a tweezers type electrode but it incorporates disk electrodes. With the CUY650P series, skin is picked up and simply sandwiched between the disk electrodes.
Kindly note Dr. Maruyama’s excellent know-how article:
According to Dr. Maruyama’s paper, the required voltage is maximum 24V. The appropriate electrode diameter depends on the size of the area into which the genes are to be transfected. If one’s target area is small, the 1mm diameter (CUY650P1) electrode is appropriate.
