LightSwitch™ Transfection Optimization Kit

optimize transfection conditions for your luciferase reporter assays

The LightSwitch™ Transfection Optimization Kit includes the key reagents and protocols needed to optimize transfection conditions for your cell line or condition of interest. The kit utilizes the FuGENE® HD Transfection Reagent, which is one of the most robust transfection reagents available, together with our LightSwitch™ Luciferase Assay Kit and LightSwitch Positive & Negative Control GoClone® constructs.

The kit was designed to help you determine what our extensive experience with transfection and reporter assays has identified as the 3 key variables to successfully transfect a variety of different cell lines:

  1. FuGENE to plasmid ratio
  2. Cells seeded per well
  3. Duration of transfection

Use of the LightSwitch Transfection Optimization Kit will help you consistently achieve higher transfection efficiencies, which will greatly improve the results of your luciferase reporter assay experiments.

The LightSwtich Transfection Optimization Kit is no longer available from Active Motif.  However, the components can still be purchased separately. Please see below:
