Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Biolistic Particle Delivery System (Gene Gun)
Make                                   : BIO-RAD
Model                                  : PDS-1000/He Biolistic Particle Delivery System
Specification   :

Click to ViewMaterial: Aluminium, acryclic chassis, Input power: 100-120 VAC, 50-60 Hz, Maximum Current: < 5A, Dimensions: 29x25.5x475 cm, Operating Conditions: 0-35°C, Vaccum: < 0.4Hg/min leakage, Over Pressure: 0.5 psi relief valve, self- resetting

  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe macro-carriers are loaded with micro-carriers coated with plasmid/DNA to be transformed. The burst of helium shock wave carries the macro particles and are held by stopping screen and the micro-carriers containing the plasmid/DNA penetrates into the bombardment chamber and enter into the target tissues.

  User Instructions
