The Calcium Phosphate Transfection Kit provides high-quality reagents to enable the introduction of DNA into eukaryotic cells via calcium phosphate co-precipitation. How it works The calcium phosphate transfection method for introducing DNA into mammalian cells is based on forming a calcium phosphate-DNA precipitate. Calcium phosphate facilitates the binding of the DNA to the cell surface. DNA then enters the cell by endocytosis. The method was first developed by Graham and van der Ebb and was later modified by Wigler. The procedure is routinely used to transfect a wide variety of cell types f...

Sodium pyruvate is commonly added to cell culture media as an energy source in addition to glucose. Since cells make sodium pyruvate as an intermediate metabolite in the glycolysis pathway, it is not a required supplement for all cell cultures. However, if cells have been grown in medium that is supplemented with sodium pyruvate, we recommend continuing use of the supplement as cell growth may lag without it. Gibco® Sodium Pyruvate (100 mM) is formulated using 11 g per liter of water. The final concentration of sodium pyruvate used in most cell culture media is 1 mM. Dual-site cGMP Manufacturi...
