Did not dilute Lipofectamine during Transfection !?

Postby Hicsuntdrac0nis » Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:49 pm

I'm transfecting cells right now and I added 100 uL of OptiMEM to a tube with the reporter plasmid and in the other tube I put 1 uL of Lipofectamine. Proceeded with the protocol and plated them on my P19 cells . . . Totally forgot to dilute the Lipofectamine before I mixed the contents after waiting the 5 minutes. Will it still work ??? I know that Lipofectamine forms aggregates but is it really that bad to not dilute the Lipofectamine ?
