Selecting the Best Transfection Method – When to Use Transfection Reagents, Viral Transduction or Electroporation

No single delivery method is ideal for all situations, but researchers may routinely employ a suboptimal approach for the sake of familiarity or to avoid any start-up costs associated with new methods. In this white paper, we will describe three methods (chemical, electroporation and viral transduction) and highlight the Mirus Bio TransIT® transfection reagents and Ingenio® EZporator® Electroporation System, which are both easy to use and cost-effective.
