Supporting Protocol



    How much transfection reagent and DNA do I need per well in a six well plate?
    5ug DNA and 10ul of transfection reagent will be fine. If toxicity is a problem, use 3~4 ug DNA.
    Does freeze-thaw affect the performance of the transfection reagent?
    Freeze-thaw does damage the transfection reagent slightly, at an approximate 5% loss. If possible, test the agent with a GFP control first.
    Is this polymer or metal based?
    This item is polymer based.
    I used this transfection reagent but I see toxicity, what are some tips to resolve this?
    Try reducing the amount of DNA plasmids and Transfection Reagent added by half.
