OverviewHuman Embryonic Kidney 293 cells, often referred to as HEK 293, HEK-293, or 293 cells, are a specific cell line originally derived from human embryonic kidney cells grown in tissue culture. HEK293 cells grow robustly and are often transfected with DNA plasmids for many cell biology research applications. HEK293 cells are also used by the biotechnology industry to produce therapeutic proteins and viruses for gene therapy. 293-Free™ Transfection Reagent has a unique polycationic liposomal formulation and is designed expressly for transfection of HEK293 cells grown in suspension culture. It is ideal for mammalian protein production. Derived from non-animal sources, 293-Free Transfection Reagent gives minimal cellular toxicity. It is provided as a sterile, ready-to use solution. The 1 ml size provides enough reagent to transfect a liter of culture.
