BioPORTER® QuikEase™ Protein Delivery Kit



Product No. BPQ24 suitable for 24 reactions
Product No. BPQ96 suitable for 96 reactions


When you need to deliver biologically active proteins into living cells quickly and effectively, at a reduced cost — BioPORTER Protein Delivery Kit is the ideal option.

The BioPORTER reagent reacts quickly and interacts non-covalently with the protein, peptide or other molecules, creating a protective vehicle for immediate delivery into cells. Various molecules (fluorescent-antibody, high and low molecular weight dextran sulfate, caspase 3 and 8, phycoerythrin-BSA, and others) have been successfully delivered into the cytoplasm of a variety of adherent and suspension cells with the BioPORTER reagent. Furthermore, apoptotic proteins like granzyme B, caspase 3 and caspase 8 that were delivered into cells remained functional and induced apoptosis in cultured cells.

BioPORTER is a valuable tool for a variety of studies, including:

  • Intercellular signaling
  • Cell cycle regulation
  • Apoptosis control
  • Oncogenesis
  • Transcripton regulation

Features & Benefits

  • Easy to Use
  • More economical than microinjections or electroporation
  • Reaches optimum levels after four hours of incubation
  • Successfully delivers various molecules such as; fluorescent antibody, high and low molecular weight dextran sulfate, caspase 3 and 8, phycoerythrin-BSA, and others.
  • Delivers effectively into a variety of adherent and suspension cells
  • Apoptopic proteins delivered with BioPORTER have been found to remain functional and induce apoptosis in cultured cells.
