Magnet Assisted Transfection (MATra) is an easy-to-handle and highly efficient method to transfect cells in culture
Using this new technique, nucleic acids are in a first step associated with specific magnetic nanoparticles (MagTag®). Exploiting magnetic force the full nucleic acid dose is then drawn towards and delivered into the target cells leading to efficient transfection without disturbing the membrane architecture, without causing chromosomal damage or leaving a hole in the cell membrane like other transfection technologies. Other MATra products available include:
- MATra Reagents - MATra-A Reagent, MATra-S Immobilizer, MA Lipofection Enhancer and MATra-si Reagent.
- MATra Magnet Plates - Magnet Bar Plates (96 & 24), Universal Magnet Plates.
- IBAfect Reagents - 0.5, 1 & 5mls.
