DNA transfection type

In DNA transfection, the DNA transferred into the cell can be expressed on an extrachromosomal plasmid (called transient transfection) or integrated into the cell genome (called stable transfection). Due to the multiple copies of the gene cassette, transient transfection is conducive to high-level expression and rapid analysis (within 24 to 96 hours). Stable transfection is beneficial for the long-term study of gene expression in the cellular environment.

BOC Sciences provides a variety of validated DNA transfection reagents for the life science research to adapt to different types of DNA samples. Our products can safely and effectively deliver plasmid DNA and virus DNA into mammalian cells, so that you can get more reliable results in your studies.

Applications of our DNA transfection kits

  • In bacterial transformation, DNA transfection kits usually used for gene overexpression to produce a large amount of protein that can be purified and studied.
  • In eukaryotic cells, DNA transfection kits are often used to study the role of gene expression in the cellular environment.
    • In vitro functional studies
    • Disease Research
