- Microinjection processes use either metal microinjection needles or glass micropipettes to inject small liquid volumes. For example, genetic material may be inserted into a living cell, a drug introduced into an eye or brain, or fluid injected into a muscle. Typically, microinjection is performed under a microscope. A stereotaxic frame setup may be required.
Recently, WPI introduced its customizable Microinjection System with everything you need to get started. We can help you customize your system with many options and microinjection system accessories. The basic system includes:
Microinjection pump like the PV820 Pneumatic PicoPump
LED lighted microscope base with a PZMIII Stereo Microscope and an articulating mirror
WPI offers a variety of pumps along with special syringes, stereotaxic frames, glass capillaries and needles. The setup you choose depends on the size of your microinjection aliquots, the volume to be injected and the size of needle or glass tip you choose. In addition, we offer an electroporator for transfection procedures.
Whether you are working with Danio rerio (zebrafish), Xenopus, Drosophila or Caenorhabditis elegans, we can help you customize a microinjection system for your application.

Our black instruments are coated with titanium nitride (TiN), an extremely hard ceramic material.The TiN coating hardens and protects the cutting edge. Ceramic coated anti-reflective instruments are perfect for microscopy and microsurgical applications.
Coating surgical instruments with a black ceramic offers several distinct advantages.
Wear and tear resistant
The coating adds a thin layer to the metal instrument that actually makes the instrument harder, offering surgeons greater precision and perfection. This anti-glare surface minimizes any reflection off the surface of your instruments. The incredibly smooth coating improving the instruments' resistance to corrosion and minimizing friction. The reduced wear and tear means coated instruments last considerably longer. The ceramic coating is virtually impenetrable, because the raw material is bonded to the instrument both physically and chemically. The black coated instruments are much more resilient to the pressure of daily use and chemical processing. Coated instruments last considerably longer.

August 09, 2019Whether you are working with your surgical instruments under bright lights or using a microscope, non-reflective black surgical instruments offer a distinct advantage. The titanium coating not only hardens and protects the cutting edge, but it also minimizes reflection from the surface of your instruments while you are working. They are corrosion resistant and biocompatible. See Selection
August 02, 2019The new WPI MICRO-ePORE™ pinpoint cell penetrator is a simple and versatile system that can be used to facilitate microinjection of a diverse array of compounds and biomolecules into oocytes and pre-implantation stage mammalian embryos. Patent pending Flutter Electrode Technology assists in small, clean, precise membrane penetration without tearing or damaging the membrane. It results in substantially increased viability of embryos. In this quick video, Dr. Pelczar from the Center for Transgenic Models in Switzerland demonstrates the ease of cell penetration using the new MICRO-ePORE™.
