Automation is used for many applications to reduce variation caused by manual handling and to obtain reproducible results in high-throughput assays. High-throughput applications, such as knockdown studies or target screenings, often include cell transfection.
Small inhibitory RNAs (siRNAs) have become the focus of interest in many laboratories. For the first time, these molecules offer an easy way to knock down the expression of selected genes in mammalian cells without having to resort to classical gene knockout techniques.
Our Universal Transfection Reagent is a unique formulation of a proprietary polymer blend used for transient and stable transfection of nucleic acids into various eukaryotic cell lines and hard-to-transfect primary cells. This is a fast and easy protocol is compatible with serum, serum-free medium and antibiotics.
