The Art of Transfection and Transduction

Optimized transfection and transduction achieve gene delivery success




Transfection and transduction are essential techniques in life science laboratories for gene expression, bioproduction, or therapeutic purposes. To investigate the effect of a given gene, researchers need to introduce modified genetic material into cells without killing them. This is often accomplished with either transduction or transfection. However, choosing and successfully executing the appropriate technique can be can a challenge.
