GenJet™ DNA In Vitro Tranfection Reagent for C6 Glioma cell is pre-optimized for transfecting C6 glioma cells. The C6 glioma cell line is a widely used cell line in neurobiological research. Compared to primary neural cells, the C6 cell line offers some major advantages like easy accessibility and culture as well as a good availability of high cell numbers. Nevertheless, the biggest disadvantage of the C6 cells is that they are difficult-to-transfect with commonly used non-viral transfection methods. The pre-optimized transfection reagent simplifies the transfection of C6 cells. Transfection efficiencies of over 60% can be easily achieved with excellent cell viabilities of above 90%.

Refer to the following optimal transfection conditions for maximal transfection efficiency on C6 glioma cells. GenJet™ reagent, 1.0 ml, is sufficient for 300 to 600 transfections in 24 well plates or 150 to 300 transfections in 6 well plates.
