Hi All,

If Silwet L-77 is no longer distributed in your country; if you cannot 
afford or don't want to buy gallons of it; if you, on the other hand, 
think the Vac-In-Stuff is too expensive; or you are simply looking for 
an alternative: we routinely use Dow Corning's Sylgard 309 (distributed 
by Norac Concepts, Inc. in Canada), which slightly outperforms Silwet 
L-77 (20% more transformants) in our hands (we use 125 ul of Sylgard 309 
in 250 ml of Agro resuspension).

All the best.
