in my experience too, this works and if the injection is given perfectly u can see a white blister clearly.

I don't know if you still need the protocol:)
Anyway, for base of tail DNA injection for electroporation, we shave the base of tail and work in 2 people. One keeps the head-neck and the second the tail and back legs plus performs the injection and electroporation.
