Transfection Lab Essentials

Transfection solutions optimized for efficiency, viability, and reproducibility

Expertise in cellular and molecular biology is behind the Invitrogen product portfolio, which are the most cited and trusted transfection and selection systems available.

To address the expanding demands of researchers, the family of lipid based Invitrogen Lipofectamine transfection reagent solutions have been designed for effective and efficient nucleic acid delivery into both traditional and difficult-to-transfect cell lines and for transient transfection in suspension cultures. Similarly, the Invitrogen Neon Transfection System has been shown to successfully electroporate over 140 different cell types, offering an efficient, flexible, and simple alternative to lipid-based reagents when needed.

Packaging must protect the product inside—but that doesn’t have to mean sacrificing sustainability. Lipofectamine products are shipped at ambient temperature, diverting 24,000 ft3 of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) coolers from landfills annually. We reduce the carbon footprint from packaging and shipping these products by 80 tons (CO2 equivalents).
