How does cost compare for electroporation vs. more traditional transfection?

Answer

There are a variety of factors that should be considered when determining total protein production costs for different transfection methods including –  the required scale, the level of cell productivity post transfection, the requirement for use of specialized media or additives, as well as the ability to use higher cell densities which impacts both upstream and downstream process costs.   Secondary costs include reliability of the method and flexibility to use a single system for multiple proteins and cell types.
