Cytofect™ Transfection Reagents
A new class of unique chemical formulations specifically optimized for transfecting primary cells as well as cell lines.
Cytofect™ Transfection Reagents are supplied by CellApplications, Inc., a worldwide provider of primary cells and cell culture tools to the scientific research community for more than 17 years.
Transfection of primary cells, such as endothelial cells, epithelial cells, fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells and hepatocytes, has always been challenging. The most common systems currently used for molecular delivery to these cells include expensive electroporation instruments and relatively toxic chemical formulations.
With the release of the Cytofect™ Transfection Reagent Kits, researchers can now obtain the benefits of:

  • High efficiency
  • Low toxicity
  • Simple protocols
  • Cost effective solution
  • One complete system

The Cytofect™ Transfection Kit is a complete transfection system supplying everything you need to perform your transfection simply and effectively. The Cytofect™ Transfection Kit includes:

  • Cytofect-2: the primary cell-specific or cell line-specific Cytofect™ Transfection Reagent
  • Peptide Enhancer (PE): efficiency-boosting enhancer
  • Antibiotics-free optimized GrowthMedia
  • Transfection Media

Transfection Kits are available for:

  • Endothelial Cells
  • Epithelial Cells
  • Fibroblasts
  • Smooth Muscle Cells
  • Hepatocytes
  • Cell Lines


We offer transduction products of Sirion Biotech an expert in the field of adenovirus technology. Many primary cells are hard to transfect and viral vectors are able to overcome this disadvantage.
