MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--If low protein expression in insect cells is bugging you, consider the NEW TransIT®-Insect Transfection Reagent. Insect cells are a powerful platform for generating recombinant baculovirus and for producing high-levels of soluble, functional protein. TransIT-Insect is an animal-origin free transfection reagent specifically optimized for high gene expression in a variety of insect cell types with distinct advantages over other reagents such as:
- Exceptional DNA Delivery - In insect cell types including Sf9, High Five™ and S2
- High Baculovirus Production - Ideal for baculovirus expression in insect cells
- Serum Compatibility - Non-liposomal animal-origin free formulation that eliminates media change
- Better Value - Low reagent amounts required per transfection
“Many of the reagents addressing insect cell transfection are cationic-lipid formulations and yield low efficiency in serum containing media,” said Scott Hayes, Vice President, Mirus Bio LLC. “As our customers depend on the non-liposomal nature of TransIT® transfection technologies, they can be assured that TransIT-Insect will meet their expectations for high efficiency and robust protein production.”
In head-to-head testing, transfections with TransIT-Insect show at least 2-fold better protein expression in insect cells.
