"We are very satisfied about the collaboration with Cellectricon. The Cellaxess Elektra opens a new dimension in RNAi delivery and high-throughput screening - that is the electroporation of primary adherent cell types."

Dr. Robin Ketteler, Manager of the high-throughput screening facility at the MRC LMCB, University College London

Applications for the Cellaxess Elektra include stimulation and voltage control of cultures in small molecule screening, transfection of siRNA and cDNA to primary cell cultures in genomic screening applications, as well as delivery of small molecules and antibodies in lead identification and target validation. The Cellaxess® Elektra Discovery Platform can be equipped with an imaging-based microplate reader for recording of transient fluorescence and luminescence signals from living cells.
