Transfection Tools

Once a gene editing strategy has been designed, the first step in the CRISPR gene editing workflow is to identify the best method for delivering the CRISPR-Cas9 system into the animal, human, tumor-derived, or wild-type cells of interest. Transfer efficiency and subsequent cell viability are very important when considering which transfection method to use.

The industry-leading Gene Pulser Xcell Electroporation System has been used in over 700 peer-reviewed studies and has supported a wide range of research for more than 20 years. If lipid-mediated transfer proves most efficient, TransFectin Lipid Reagent provides a gentle, effective option even for primary cell lines. The ZOE Fluorescent Cell Imager can be used to monitor transfection efficiencies and cell health right on your bench, and the TC20 Automated Cell Counter automates cell counting at multiple stages of transfection, improving accuracy in cell counting across all stages of the experiment.
