The Helios Gene Gun is a convenient, hand-held device that provides rapid and direct gene transfer into a range of targets in vivo. The unit uses an adjustable low-pressure helium pulse to sweep DNA- or RNA-coated gold microcarriers from the inner wall of a small plastic cartridge directly into the target. Sample preparation is also efficient: Use the tubing prep station and the tubing cutter included in the system to make up to 50 sample cartridges at one time, with known amounts of DNA or RNA and gold microcarriers inside each cartridge. Then load up to 12 DNA or RNA-coated gold cartridges into the holder, insert the holder into the device, and fire. The power and versatility of this instrument match its speed, since you can coprecipitate different nucleic acids onto the gold and thus deliver plasmids carrying various traits all in one experiment. Targeted gene delivery is now a reality for in vivo research applications.
