GenJet™ DNA In Vitro Transfection Reagent for MDCK cell is pre-optimized for transfecting MDCK cells. MDCK cell line is derived from the kidney of an apparently normal, adult, female cocker spaniel; used in numerous viral studies; susceptible to vesicular stomatitis, vaccinia, and Coxsackie viruses, and certain reoviruses and adenoviruses.

he "Shaved Cell Transfection" protocol was optimized to achieve maximal transfection efficiency. Refer to the following optimal transfection conditions for maximal transfection efficiency on MDCK cells. GenJet™ reagent, 1.0 ml, is sufficient for 300 transfections in 24 well plates or 150 transfections in 6 well plates.

Summary of Optimal Shaved CellTransfection Conditions:
Cell culture medium
Confluency of cell on the day of shaving
Cell density for plating

GenJet™ (µl) : DNA (µg) Ratio
Diluent for DNA and Transfection Reagent

Incubation Time to Form GenJet™/DNA Complex
