Various Nucleofector™ Kits and corresponding Amaxa™ Optimized Protocols are available for the transfection of HeLa using the different Nucleofection™ Platforms.
Different HeLa subclones derived from different sources may have divergent features and display an extremely high genetic instability. Due to this variety between different HeLa clones optimal Nucleofection™ Conditions may vary for each clone. This is the reason why we developed different protocols for the HeLa clone CCL-2 from American Type Culture Collection and the HeLa clone ACC57 from DSMZ. For Nucleofection™ of other HeLa clones, the optimal Nucleofection™ Conditions can easily be determined using the Cell Line Optimization Kits or alternatively please contact our Scientific Support Team for further information.
Example for Nucleofection™ of HeLa cells
HeLa cells were transfected by Nucleofection™ using a plasmid encoding the enhanced green fluorescent protein eGFP. 24 hours post Nucleofection™, the cells were analyzed by light (left) and fluorescence microscopy (right).
For the 4D-Nucleofector™ Kits "L" and "S" indicate the Nucleocuvette™ Vessel format. L = 100 µl single Nucleocuvette™, S = 16-well Nucleocuevtte™ Strip.
