Magnetically Enhanced siRNA Transfection

We have added a new set of products that magnetically drive transfection.

MATra products are designed to enhance the transfection capabilties of our i-Fect and pn-Fect kits.

The technique requires lease or purchase of the Universal Magnetic Plate AND for i-Fect and other siRNA transfection reagents, please also purchase the MATra-siRNA Reagent. For pn-Fect and other Nucleic Acid transfectants, you would buy the MATra-A Regeant.
If your cells are in suspension, you will also need MATra-s-Immobilizer.
