The ATx is a research-scale electroporation instrument ideal for cell engineering to produce proteins, develop cell-based assays and vaccines or to design the next generation of cell and gene therapies.

The ATx can rapidly transfect from 75 thousand to 700 million cells per run.

The ATx is our introductory instrument and is optimized for static electroporation. Comparatively, the STx and GTx are more advanced instruments equipped with a peristaltic pump to enable flow electroporation.
