Primary cells are difficult to transfect, so luciferase assay would be difficult, unless you have a reliable way to transfect them with high efficiency.


If by chip you mean ChIP, yes you can do it just as well as you can do cell lines, as long as you have decent number of cells.


If by chip you mean microarray, yes you can do it.

So. Now that you have your first ever question on bioforum answered (or not), mail yourself your username and password so you don't forget them, and then come back soon to update us on how it all worked out. That's how you build Karma in science.
