  1. Harvest the cells in the exponential growth phase and centrifuge them (for 5-10 minutes, 200 x g, at room temperature).
  2. Resuspend the cells in DMEM / 0.5% FCS, determine the number of cells and centrifuge them (for 5-10 minutes, 200 x g, at room temperature). Remove supernatant.

    Note: The overall incubation time in the Eppendorf Electroporation Buffer must not exceed 30 minutes to guarantee a successful electroporation!

  3. Resuspend the cells in Hypoosmolar Electroporation Buffer. When doing so, set the cell concentration to 2.5 x 106 cells/ml..
  4. Add and mix plasmid DNA (12.5 g/ml final concentration, in bidistilled H2O).
  5. Transfer 800 l cell suspension into electroporation cuvettes (4 mm gap width). The cell suspension must be free of air bubbles.
  6. Electroporation:

    Mode Eukaryotes Voltage (V) 300 V Time constant (T) 50 s No. of pulses (n) 1
  7. After the pulse, allow the cell suspension to stand in the cuvette for 5-10 minutes at room temperature.
  8. Carefully transfer the cell suspension from the cuvette to 3-5 ml DMEM / 10% FCS, and cultivate it in a 55 mm culture dish.

Detection methods for transfection:
The expression of the plasmid pEGFP-N1 can be detected clearly after 24-48 hours with the aid of FACS analysis or under a fluorescence microscope. Result: Survival rate: 55% Transfection rate: 18% based on the number of surviving cells
10% based on the initial number of cells used for the experiment

Results were measured 24 hours after transfection.
