Summary:The ability to precisely deliver molecules into single cells is of great interest to biotechnology researchers. For highly effective delivery of molecules into cells, we developed a new biotool for electroporation of cells with selectivity at the single cell level using nanofountain probe (NFP) technology. The NFP tool is much gentler to cells than bulk electroporation or microinjection and hence offers very high viability of transfected cells.
