Detection methods for transfection:
- Harvest the cells in the exponential growth phase and centrifuge
them (for 5-10 minutes, 200 x g, at room temperature).
- 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).
Note: The overall incubation time in the Eppendorf Electroporation
Buffer must not exceed 30 minutes to guarantee a successful electroporation!
- Resuspend the cells in Hypoosmolar Electroporation Buffer. When doing
so, set the cell concentration to 1 x 106 cells/ml.
- Add and mix plasmid DNA (5-20 g
/ml final concentration, in bidistilled
- Transfer 400 l cell suspension into electroporation cuvettes (2 mm
gap width). The cell suspension must be free of air bubbles.
Time constant (T)
No. of pulses (n)
- After the pulse, allow the cell suspension to stand in the cuvette
for 5-10 minutes at room temperature.
- Carefully transfer the cell suspension from the cuvette to 3 ml DMEM / 10% FCS, and cultivate them in a 55 mm
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.
28% based on the initial number of cells used for the
Results were measured 48 hours after transfection.
