Thermo Scientific TurboFect Transfection Reagent is recommended for efficient transfection of plasmid DNA. Distinct from lipid-based formulas, TurboFect is a sterile solution of a proprietary cationic polymer in water. The polymer forms positively-charged complexes with DNA that are both compact and stable. These complexes protect DNA from degradation and facilitate efficient plasmid delivery into eukaryotic cells.


• Excellent transfection efficiency in the presence or absence of serum
• Ready-to-use reagent – no need to reconstitute, dilute, or manipulate
• Simple protocol

High transfection efficiency of plasmid DNA into a wide variety of cell types
