Researcher Shares Video of MICRO-ePORE™ Assisted Cell Penetration

Cell Penetrator increases embryo viabilityThe 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™.
