Oxford, UK, May 14, 2013 - Oxford Expression Technologies (OET), the award-winning specialist provider of baculovirus-based protein expression solutions, launches flashFECTIN™, a transfection reagent optimized for insect cell lines. Used in conjunction with the world renowned flashBAC™ system, the new reagent represents significant improvements with respect to ease of use, speed and affordability.
Co-transfections can be troublesome and time consuming, flashFECTIN™ has been specifically designed to address these issues, the co-transfection protocol has been highly streamlined to allow the fastest flashBAC™ reaction times to date whilst still maintaining the high efficiencies expected from the flashBAC™ system. The new transfection reagent is a non-lipid based formulation that is non-toxic to cells and is specifically optimized for insect cell lines Sf9, Sf21 and Tni.
Passing comment, James Bernard, Commercial Director at Oxford Expression Technologies said, “We are pleased to announce the launch of flashFECTIN™, our new transfection reagent to further improve the flashBAC™ system” he continued, “we are delighted that our customers can now benefit from a more affordable system with a faster and simplified protocol that still produces the same high transformation efficiencies.”
