Magnetofection™ is a simple and highly efficient transfection method, where nucleic acids complex with iron oxide nanoparticles. This aggregate is then concentrated over target cells using a magnetic pate, and entry into the cell occurs via endocytosis and pinocytosis.
ViroMag is a versatile reagent for viral transfections. Easy to use, the simple protocol sees ViroMag and the virus to be transduced mixed in a one-step procedure, with no molecular biology processes or biochemical modifications required. This reagent demonstrates an exceptional high efficiency to promote, control and assist viral transductions. ViroMag is available fluorescently labelled with TRITC. ViroMag is applicable to all viral vectors and presents unique properties due to a specific and optimised magnetic nanoparticles formulation. Applications include:
Suitable for all viral vectors: Adenovirus, a-virus, Baculovirus, Herpes virus, Lentivirus, Retrovirus, Rhabdovirus, Paramyxovirus, Polyomavirus
Mammalian cells: Adherent and suspension primary cells, hard to transfect and cell lines.
