    Abstract

    Plasmid DNA adsorbed onto a glass surface could be transferred into cells by pressing the glass onto the cells, and the gene encoded in the DNA was expressed in the cells. This novel transfection technique will be applicable to the preparation of cell microarray systems and for gene delivery mediated by a solid medical device such as a stent.
