Applications:
• In Vivo Drug or Gene Delivery
• Gene Therapy
• Protein Delivery

BTX Tweezertrodes are reusable, tweezer-style electrodes for in vivo drug or gene delivery applications. Tweezertrodes consist of a standard 11.5 cm tweezer modified with stainless steel circular disk electrodes inserted at the tip. The gap between the electrodes may be adjusted up to 2 cm and have a positive electrode indicator.

Tweezertrodes come in two models, 45-0118 has an electrode diameter of 7 mm and 45-0119 has an electrode diameter of 10 mm.
Following injection of the molecule of interest, the Tweezertrode electrode disks are used to grasp the tissue. An electroporation pulse is then given, initiating pore formation and incorporation of the molecules into the tissue cells that are in direct contact with the electrode.
