Hi Jonathan,

Those concentrations are reasonable, assuming that you are injecting  
about 1 nl/embryo. If you read any of the original papers on the Tol2  
transposon you will find details. For instance, look at our Tol2kit  

KM Kwan et al. (2007) The Tol2kit: a multisite Gateway-based  
construction kit for Tol2 transposon transgenesis constructs.  
Developmental Dynamics, 236:3088-99.

Or, read the Tol2kit wiki:
