Dear Joseph, 

if you cannot find it at their website ( or similar), 
couold it be that your colleague is looking for lipofectamine or lipofectamine 
2000, formerly sold by Life Technologies (now phagocyted by Invitrogen)? 
Or she just might try polyethyleneimine (PEI) transfection. works on many 
cells and is cheap (1 bathtube full of reagent for almost no cost).
