Transfection Kits
Adapted from RNAi therapeutic technology currently in clinical trials, Precision NanoSystems’ non-viral gene transfection kits perform exceptionally well in cell types that are challenging to transfect with other methods (eg. transfection of primary cells). This technology encapsulates nucleic acids in lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) that mimic low-density lipoproteins (LDLs). LNPs take advantage of an endogenous pathway ubiquitous among mammalian cells to achieve high transfection efficiency (typically >90%) with no observable toxicity. Kits for use with different cell types and nucleic acid payloads including siRNA, messenger RNA (mRNA), and plasmid DNA (pDNA) are available. The kits are designed for use with NanoAssemblr™ systems established in the drug formulation and nanoparticle manufacturing field for ensuring high-quality reproducible results are achieved rapidly with minimal training.
