GENIUS DNA Transfection Reagent

  • Minimal cytotoxicity
  • Easy protocol without medium change
  • Compatible with serum and antibiotics
  • High efficiency, low cost

The GENIUS DNA Transfection Reagent from Westburg is ideal for fast, economical, high-efficiency transfection of a variety of adherent cells including HeLa, HEK-293, NIH-3T3, CHO, Cos and Jurkat cells. Adherent primary cells can also be efficiently tranfected.

GENIUS DNA Transfection Reagent is a sterile solution of a cationic polymer in water. The polymer forms compact, stable, positively charged complexes with DNA. These complexes protect DNA from degradation and facilitate gene delivery into eukaryotic cells.

Transfection can be performed in the presence or absence of serum. This means a fast and simple protocol without media changes.

Compared to lipid-based or other polymer-based transfection reagents GENIUS demonstrates minimal toxicity to cells.
