|Electroporation Cuvette Description||Gap Width||Filling Volume μl (microliters)||Cell Types|
|1 mm Gap Sterile Electroporation Cuvette||1 mm (White Cap)||100 μl||Bacteria|
|2 mm Gap Sterile Electroporation Cuvette||2 mm (Blue Cap)||400 μl||Yeast|
|4 mm Gap Sterile Electroporation Cuvette||4 mm (Red Cap)||800 μl||Mammalian Cells|
The gap size is the distance between the electrodes and is important when optimizing your electroporation experiment. Gap size is used when determining the field strength (kV) by using the formula of voltage divided by gap size (cm). If the desired field strength and gap size is known you can also determine what the appropriate voltage would be required to successfully perform the experiment.
