Efficiently Transfect Difficult-to-Transfect Cells
Lipofectamine 3000 reagent is designed to efficiently transfect difficult-to-transfect cells, yielding superior transfection performance across the broadest array of cell types. Successfully transfected cell types include:
Fibroblast (3T3, COS-7)
Myoblast (C2C12, L6 CRL-1458)
Hepatocyte (HepG2, HuH7)
Erythroleukemic cell (K562)
Breast carcinoma (MCF7, Hs578T)
Prostate carcinoma (LNCap)
Lung carcinoma (A549, NCI-H460)
Osteosarcoma (U-2 OS, Saos-2)
Colon carcinoma (Caco2, SW480)
Pancreatic carcinoma (PANC-1)
Skin melanoma (SK-MEL-28)
Transfect Common Cells Efficiently and Cost-Effectively
For common cell types, Lipofectamine 3000 reagent is more cost-effective than other reagents due to its high concentration and low usage amount. The 1.5mL size provides up to 1500 transfection reactions (in 24-well plates).
Achieve Superior Transfection Efficiency While Maintaining Low Toxicity
Lipofectamine 3000 reagent maintains a high transfection efficiency within a robust dynamic range of lipid doses for quick and easy optimization. A low toxicity lipid dose (0.75µL for 24-well plates) is suggested for applications requiring minimal disruption of the cells.
Enable High Transfection Efficiency in Novel Genome Editing Applications
Lipofectamine 3000 reagent is suitable for novel genome editing applications. It increases the likelihood of successful cleavage and recombination with TALENs or CRISPRs through highly efficient transfection, ultimately maximizing the efficiency of genetic modifications and simplifying the downstream processes.
