The CellTram 4r Air and CellTram 4r Oil are manual microinjectors suitable for a broad range of life science applications. The CellTram 4r Air is a pneumatic injector for oil-free micromanipulation and gentle holding of cells in suspension. Due to its excellent performance, it is also highly suitable for uptake and injection of cells (e.g., of sperm or ES cells). For this application, its performance is comparable to that of oil-filled injectors. The CellTram 4r Oil is a hydraulic, oil-filled microinjector that provides more direct sample control and can generate higher pressures than an air system. It is optimized for leakage-free work and easy oil filling. Both models can be used with all common micromanipulation systems yet they develop their full potential with Eppendorf manipulators. The CellTram 4r Air/Oil injectors are for research use only.
Optimal protection for your cells
Minimizing mechanical trauma to your sample is critical for achieving optimal results. The new capillary holder 4 (slim shape) in combination with Eppendorf manipulators allows for injecting with straight capillaries at angles lower than 15°. This helps to achieve highest survival rates for your developing embryos.
