Torpedo DNA Transfection Reagent


Key Features

A reagent for transfection of eukaryotic cells with plasmid DNA and RNA; optimized for use with ibidi µ-Slides and µ-Dishes

  • Superb biocompatibility with low cytotoxicity for use in live cell imaging
  • Transfection efficiency optimized for microscopic assays
  • Ready to use
Special Requirements?



Lipid based transfection reagents often interact with plastic surfaces and therefore affect transfection efficiency and cell viability. ibidi’s Torpedo DNA reagent has been specifically optimized for use with ibidi’s plastic materials. This results in a reagent with very low cytotoxicity as well as high transfection efficiency.


Composition Proprietary cationic lipids
Assays Up to 500 (24-well) or up to 150 (6-well)
with 0.5 ml reagent
Storage -20 °C

HT-1080 Cells Show High Transfection Efficiency After Transfection with Torpedo DNA

HT-1080 cells were transfected with pCMV LifeAct-TagGFP2 using Torpedo DNA. The cells were imaged 24 hours afterwards showing high transfection efficiency.
