HEK293 Transient Production (Tuna293™ Process)

HEK293 cells have been the most popular mammalian transient production platform. The primary advantage of HEK293 cells is transfection efficiency. HEK293 cells are amenable to a variety of transfection methods and may offer distinct glycosylation patterns suitable for your studies. 

Below is a graph of typical yields between our Tuna293 transient production platform, our TunaCHO expression system and other CHO transient expression system to show the difference in yields.



A variety of purification methods and production scales are available. Sample pricing is shown below.
