With the exception of the cost for an electroporator machine, the electroporation method is advantageous because of large scale transfection and no need for a transfection reagent.
However, implementation of the compensation circuit without preliminary analysis of the transient processes could result in an over-damped or under-damped response, which is in both cases undesirable and may result in irreversible damage of the electroporator or poor pulse generation flexibility.
Jurkat cells were resuspended in 350[micro]1 and transfected by electroporation using an Easyject plus Electroporator (Equibio, Middlesex, UK).
