I'm looking for an alternative to using Life Technologies' (Gibco-BRL)
lipofectin.  At $130/ml, I feel like I'm getting royally ripped-off,
especially when I consider the rate at which I use it.  I hear it's not
difficult to make and the cost of the materials turns out to be about
$1/ml.  If anybody has a protocol on how to make a lipofectin-like reagent
could you please send it to me.  Thanks!!!
