Stringently Developed, Manufactured & Quality Controlled Reagents

Transduction is mediated by a baculovirus that is non-replicating in mammalian cells and safe to handle, but still provides robust gene delivery.  The Invitrogen BacMam reagents are stringently developed, manufactured and quality controlled: they are ready for immediate use—no need to purify plasmids or worry about vector integrity and quality.  No lipids, dye-loading chemicals or other potentially harmful treatments are required.
