History of the Neon® Transfection System and the Microporation MP-100
|The Neon® Transfection System is a second-generation transfection system that uses an electronic pipette tip as a transfection chamber. The first model of this technology, the Microporator (MP-100), was commercialized by Digital Bio in 2006. The MP-100 was the first electroporation technology that avoided the use of a standard electroporation cuvette and thus achieved exceptional transfection efficiency and high cell viability in difficult to transfect cells. Invitrogen acquired the Microporator MP-100 technology and following some enhancements to the user interface, launched the technology to the world-wide market under the name, "Neon® Transfection System".|
