Transfection reagent products
Xfect Transfection Reagent transfects plasmid DNA into a wide variety of mammalian cells and is available in a liquid format, as well as an exceptionally convenient, dry-down format known as Xfect Single Shots. We also offer high-efficiency Xfect reagents for transfecting all types of RNA or protein, as well as a calcium phosphate-based transfection kit and a kit designed specifically for mouse embryonic stem cells.
|Xfect Single Shots||Simplify your transfection to just one step. Xfect Single Shots are pre-aliquoted, lyophilized, and are ready to use right out of the tube. Just add your DNA, vortex, and apply to a single well of a 6-well plate (Midi) or a single 10-cm dish (Maxi). Xfect Single Shots are serum-compatible, have a low cytotoxicity profile, and transfect a broad range of cells with high efficiency.|
|Xfect transfection reagent for plasmid transfection||Increase your transfection efficiency to the level you need without killing your cells. Xfect is a biodegradable transfection polymer, screened from a pool of 2,300 candidates for its very low cytotoxicity profile and high transfection efficiency. Xfect is recommended for most cell types.|
|Mouse embryonic stem cell transfection reagent||High-efficiency transfection of plasmids into mouse embryonic stem cells. Better efficiency than the leading competitors; superior gene expression in mES cells.|
|Calcium phosphate transfection reagent||High efficiency and dependable results. Due to its highly consistent pH and salt concentration, this kit provides reliable transfection efficiencies that you can't always achieve with home brew calcium phosphate buffers.|
|RNA transfection reagent||Optimized for all RNA transfections. The Xfect RNA Transfection Reagent is designed to work with all types of RNA. This includes small RNAs such as siRNA and miRNA, as well as messenger RNA. We have also tested and verified that this reagent will work with single guide RNAs (sgRNA) for CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene editing. While most transfection reagents can be harmful to your cells, this transfection reagent has very low cytotoxicity.|
|Protein transfection reagent||Protein transfection is extremely rapid because it bypasses cellular processes such as transcription and translation (1–2 hr compared to 18–48 hr). This makes it ideal for studying transient effects of proteins. It also eliminates the possibility of harmful, random DNA integration into target-cell genomes.|
