Lipofectamine™ 2000 & BrainBits CNS Tissue Kit

Now, BrainBits® is a distributor of Lipofectamineâ„¢ 2000 Transfection Reagent.   When combined with our specially formulated BrainBits® Transfection Media, Lipofectamineâ„¢ 2000 is ideal for hard to transfect primary neurons. We compared three popular transfection reagents and Lipofectamineâ„¢ 2000 outperformed the competition.Â

•             Optimized for use with BrainBits® tissue, dissociated, and adherent neurons.

•             Our transfection protocol prevents toxicity.

•             A wide range of available volumes to meet transfection requirements while preventing reagent waste.

When combined with the BrainBits Complete Culturing Kit, you have everything you need to start a culture from fresh embryonic tissue for your transfection experiments.

This kit is perfect for the researcher just starting out or for those who want reliability.

Great for classroom education allowing a hands-on approach for the next generation researchers.
