Flatpack Chambers are primarily used for prokaryotic applications; however they are used often for high efficiency stem cell transfection as well.
The single-use Flat Packs are available in three configurations with 4 mm, 1.83 mm or 0.56 mm electrode gaps. Gamma Irradiation is used to sterilize the chambers and they are wrapped in individual packages.
Flatpacks may be used in Safety Stands for Flatpack Chambers (47-0208 and 47-0209).
The 4 mm gap version has a volume capacity of 1 to 10 ml. It is ideal for large volume transfections and is recommended for us in combination with either Cytoporation Medium T (47-0002) or Cytoporation Medium T4 (47-0003). The 0.56 mm gap chamber has a volume capacity from 10 to 85 µl. This design provides the unique combination of small sample volumes with field strengths as high as 40 kV/cm.
The chamber with 1.83 mm gap has a three-ply solid sandwich construction of stainless steel and mylar plastic and holds a volume of 1.5 ml, ideal for stem cells.
