Goettingen, Germany, July 05, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Transfection is the delivery of nucleic acids into living cells through nonviral methods. The ultimate goal of transfection is to deliver nucleic acids to cells in order to study gene expression.
The science behind transfection spans the humble beginning of gene delivery via calcium phosphate precipitation to recent methods that are not only easier to perform but also more efficient and consistent. Mirus Bio has been an integral player in transfection since the development of the first low-toxicity transfection formulation — TransIT®-LT1 in 1995. Over the years, Mirus has expanded the TransIT® line into a comprehensive platform of broad-spectrum and cell line–specific TransIT® Transfection Reagents and Kits. Mirus also added the Ingenio® Electroporation Kit and Solution for delivery of nucleic acids into a wide variety of cell types, some of them refractory to chemical transfection.
What is Transfection? Reagent Agent® Transfection Database from The Transfection Experts
In addition to reliable high efficiency transfection reagents, Mirus Bio has expanded its transfection expertise with the development of the Reagent Agent® - a new online tool designed to determine the best solution for delivery of any nucleic acid into any cell type, including hard-to-transfect cell lines and primary cells. Search results are based on extensive in-house transfection and electroporation data, customer feedback, and peer-reviewed citations. Additional searches can be performed based on application area of interest.
Reagent Agent® includes the following features and benefits:
• Expansive Database – Includes transfection and electroporation recommendations for over 600 cell types
• Comprehensive Results – Search based on your nucleic acid of interest including plasmid DNA, siRNA, mRNA and more
• Easy-to-use Search Functions – Input entry fields are straightforward and yield results in seconds
• Driven by Scientists – Combined expertise from in-house data, external scientific feedback and citations brings you reliable transfection solutions
