- What recommendations do you have for selecting a transfection reagent?
- What points should I consider to achieve optimal transfection with a lipid-based transfection reagent?
- What is the stability of your transfection reagents?
- Is Lipofectamine® 3000 the same as Lipofectamine® 2000? What about Lipofectamine® LTX, Lipofectamine® PLUS, and Lipofectin®?
- Do you offer a transfection reagent for transfection of mRNA?
- I've mistakenly frozen my lipid reagent—can I still use it?
- I am getting very low transfection efficiency. Can you please provide some troubleshooting tips?
- Why do I see cytotoxicity after performing transfection? Can you please help?
- Why are my transfections not reproducible?
- Sometimes I see a small granular precipitate on my cells (microscopically) following addition of the transfection reagent:DNA complexes to my cells. Why does this happen and will I see a decrease in transfection performance?
