Prior to electroporation, it is important to keep cells at the correct temperature. If the cuvette is placed directly on ice, cells can freeze and die. If the cuvettes are kept at room temperature, cells may change their physiological state. The electroporation chiller maintains a temperature of 2 to 8 degrees C when placed on ice, enabling you to work with the cuvettes at the lab bench near the electroporation unit. The chiller holds up to 12 cuvettes inside a thermoconductive block for rapid cooling. The block conforms to SBS footprint, and contains holes for inserting standard lab thermometers. The entire block surface is anodized to be durable, reusable, and easy to clean. This unit accepts both keyed and standard cuvettes.
