Single-cell electroporation using a multifunctional pipette

Author affiliations


We present here a novel platform combination, using a multifunctional pipette to individually electroporate single-cells and to locally deliver an analyte, while in their culture environment. We demonstrate a method to fabricate low-resistance metallic electrodes into a PDMS pipette, followed by characterization of its effectiveness, benefits and limits in comparison with an external carbon microelectrode.
