In-vivo and In-utero Electroporator SP-4a


Electroporator SP-4a is optimized for in-vivo and in-utero applications. For this reason it has extremely high output current capability on an affordably secure voltage level.


Electroporator SP-4a is designed for in-vivo and in-utero applications to work in the bodies of living (certainly anaesthetized) animals. That is the reason, why the maximal output voltage of our equipment is 200 V or 400 V, depending on the application.


The output voltage range is set in the factory during the manufacturing process. You should specify the desired voltage range in the order.

Electrodes and Cables


Nearly all kinds of in-vivo electroporation applications require different, special shaped electrodes. There is a great commercial choice of various electroporator electrodes, such as flat, pin, cuvette, tweezers, pinch and other kinds of electrodes. That is why Supertech Instruments does not offer electrodes for electroporation. But we provide the appropriate, secure, high voltage output cable for your preferred electrode, as a free accessory.
