High transfection efficiency

High transfection efficiency

Fig. 1. HEK293 cells which were 70% confluent plated in a 96-well microtiter plate were transfected with TYE 563-labeled siRNA. Phase contrast (1A, 1B) and fluorescence (1C, 1D) images for the wells with (1B and 1D) or without (1A and 1C) the addition of siTran 1.0 were taken 24 hrs post transfection

High transfection efficiency

Fig. 2. HEK293 cells which were 70% confluent plated in a 96-well microtiter plate were transfected with tGFP plasmid DNA using siTran 1.0 (2A) or Turbofectin 8.0 (2B). Fluorescence images were taken 48 hrs post transfection.
