Parameters for injecting various cell lines


Many types of compounds can be injected into adhered cells using the FluidFM® technology. The following conditions have been determined by injecting Lucifer Yellow into different cell lines with a FluidFM BOT and resulted in high cell viability. The values can be used as a starting point for injection workflows, and are meant to be adjusted for each cell line and injected solution.

Cell line Setpoint* (mV) Approach Speed (µm/s) Retraction Speed  (µm/s) Pressure (mbar) Injection Time (s) Retraction Distance (µm) Idle Pressure (mbar)
