Product News: Efficient Delivery of Proteins into Living Cells with BioPORTER® Protein Delivery Reagent from AMSBIO

15 Apr 2014


BioPORTER® Protein Delivery Reagent from AMSBIO is a unique lipid formulation that allows direct translocation of proteins into living cells.

BioPORTER is the first and only lipid-based protein delivery system that efficiently transports proteins into living cells. Comprising a unique cationic lipid mixture that interacts non-covalently with the protein, BioPORTER creates a protective vehicle for immediate protein delivery. BioPORTER makes studying protein functionality faster and easier than ever before by bypassing the traditional DNA transfection, transcription, and protein translation processes.

After capturing the protein, the reagent transports the lipid protein complex into the target cell. The delivered proteins retain their structure and function while leaving the transduced cells unharmed.

Because of its simple delivery mechanism and because there’s no fusion partner or covalent bond formation, BioPORTER can efficiently deliver functionally active proteins into a wide range of cell types. The reagent is especially useful when studying protein function in cells that are difficult to transfect using traditional DNA transfection reagents.


Available either as a bulk reagent or as pre-dispensed and dried in convenient single-use QuikEase vials - BioPorter is very easy-to-use.
