Oocyte electrode are reusable slide type electrodes specifically designed for drug or gene delivery into oocytes and/or zygotes. The Oocyte Electrode is composed of platinum electrodes arranged in parallel with a 1 mm gap between them mounted on a glass slide. This electrode can be used with a microscope so that individual oocytes can be visualized during electroporation. This electrode is particularly useful for the generation of transgenic animals including use with the CRISPR/Cas 9 construct to both knock-in and knock-out targeted genes. The Oocyte Electrode may be cleaned with a mild detergent and sterilized with 70% ethanol. This electrode requires the use of Mini Micro-Grabber Cables and Tweezertrode Adapter Cables. These electrodes are compatible with the BTX ECM 830, ECM 2001 and Gemini X2 Electroporation units.


Oocyle electrodes are ideal for applications with the ECM 2001, ECM 830 or Gemini X2. In this example, the ECM 2001 generator is connected to the electrodes using the sequence of cables and adapters illustrated below. Using the ECM 830, all accessories plug directly into the unit.
