An apparatus for the particle mediated genetic transformation of organisms in vivo has two parts, a support unit and a hand unit. The hand unit is of a convenient hand manipulable size so that it can be placed readily against the organism the cells of which are to be transformed. The hand unit is connected to the support unit by a flexible umbilical so that the hand unit can be placed where desired. The apparatus is particularly well adapted for the convenient transformation of somatic cells of whole animals or humans.
An apparatus for performing a genetic transformation of a living organism by the acceleration of carrier particles comprising: a support unit constructed and arranged so as to supply a motive force for accelerating carrier particles into the organism; and hand-held means comprising a body member, a carrier sheet, and a retaining screen for retaining the carrier sheet attached to the body member, the body member having formed in it a discharge chamber constructed so as to generate a shock wave from said motive force and to direct shock wave therein toward...
