Transfection, the introduction of nucleic acid into mammalian cells, is a powerful technique used to study in vivo gene function and regulation. The Cytofect™ Epithelial Cell Transfection kit is a plasmid DNA delivery system specifically optimized to deliver DNA into a wide variety of epithelial cells. This kit contains Cytofect-1, Enhancer and Media for transfection and culturing cells. Viral Enhancer has the ability to complex with unmodified DNA via cationic Cytofect-1 and protect the transfected DNA from lysosomal degradation. This results in high transfection efficiency and viability for these traditionally hard-to-transfect primary epithelial cells.

The Kit contains all necessary reagents, media and optimized protocols to carry out successful transfection of epithelial cells with high efficiency (40%-70%) and viability (70%-95%).

Designed to improve transfection efficiency and cell viability, Cytofect is a plasmid DNA delivery system containing Cytofect-2, Enhancer and Media for transfecting and culturing cells. The Enhancer is an endosomolytic peptide that complexes with DNA and Cytofect-2, then escorts the transfection complex to the nucleus. The results are high transfection efficiency and viability for traditionally hard-to-transfect cells.
