Xfect transfection yields higher numbers of transfected, viable cells than a popular competitor reagent.
Xfect transfection reagent yields higher numbers of transfected, viable cells than a popular competitor reagent. Xfect and Product L were each used according to their respective protocols to transfect HeLa cells with increasing amounts of plasmid DNA encoding the Living Colors fluorescent protein, AcGFP1. 48 hr posttransfection, AcGFP1 expression was assessed by flow cytometry in order to determine transfection efficiency and cell viability was assessed by trypan dye exclusion assay.
