Sonitron GTS Features

Safety Transfection

Sonitron GTS is the device which can introduce gene or medicine into cells by means of cavitation generated by ultrasound and there is little damage to the cells. This technique is called “Sonoporation”. Because ultrasound is used in clinical use, the sonoporation method is suitable for research that would be developed for clinical use.

Interchangeable Transducer Module

The transducer module is interchangeable without a calibration work, because the Sonitron GTS can self-calibrate our transducers.

Focused UltraSound (FUS) Reserach

With the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) transducer module, the Sonitron GTS can be used for FUS research.

Combination with Microbubbles

The Sonitron GTS makes it possible to achieve higher transfection efficiency in combination with microbubbles. Besides, it can target specific cells with the use of special microbubbles such as Targesphere SA (Targeson Inc.).

Sonitron GTS Transducer Modules

・A variety of transducer sizes are available. The transducer modules can be easily swapped.
