AgilePulse Needle Array Electrodes are miniature needles designed to provide superior, highly-uniform electric fields in dermal or muscular tissue as part of the AgilePulse in vivo Gene Delivery Electroporation System. Applications for these electrodes include intra-dermal DNA vaccine research and antibody production, cancer chemotherapy research or intra-muscular gene therapy. The miniature parallel-needle array is inserted directly into the target site for fast, reliable in vivo electroporation. The electric fields produced are the closest approximation of parallel plate electrodes, treating approximately 80% of the target area with 95% of the applied electric field.
The needle array requires the needle array handle which includes the electrode connector cable. Several needle lengths and row spacing are available for various intra-dermal or intra-muscular applications. Needle Arrays can be used for up to 500 pulses with proper care and maintenance.
- Uniform, reliable electric fields
