細胞融合--迂回融合腔（BTX Meander Fusion Chamber）454用于微生物、植物、菌、酵母及哺乳動物細胞的細胞融合
The BTX Meander Fusion Chamber is a microslide with a novel designspecifically used for electro cell fusion. This chamber isconstructed of a conductive metal alloy, which has been depositedin a finger-like projection array on a glass microscope slide. Thismethod of manufacturing creates a highly precise working area. Theconfiguration is designed to give direct viewing of a surface area.This can be used for viewing dimer formation during alignment whileunder a microscope. The gaps are set at 0.2mm.
The Meander Fusion Chamber generates an inhomogenous field and isused for cell fusion of microorganisms, plant, fungi, yeast andmammalian cells. It is compatible with most BTX pulse generators.Cao1 used the Meander Fusion Chamber to generate quadromassecreting bifunctional antibodies. He found this method both rapidand economical to produce several quadromas in a short time.
