Magnetofection Magnetic Transfection

Magnetofection is a simple and highly efficient transfection method to transfect primary cells and hard to transfect cells. The principle of Magnetofection is to associate nucleic acids, transfection reagents or viruses with specific magnetic nanoparticles. The resulting molecular complexes are then concentrated and transported into cells supported by an appropriate magnetic field.  

Several optimized reagents have been designed for specific applications:

  • PolyMag & PolyMag Neo – polymer-based reagent for all nucleic acids transfection
  • SilenceMag – for siRNA applications
  • NeuroMag – for neurons transfection
  • CombiMag – for use in combination with another transfection reagent to enhance efficiency
  • ViroMag – for viral transduction
  • ViroMag R/L – for Lentivirus and Retrovirus transduction
  • AdenoMag – for Adenovirus and AAV transduction
  • FluoMag – fluorescent reagents 
  • LipoMag – associates DreamFect Gold with CombiMag
  • GlialMag – for microglial cell transfection
Magnetofection requires the use of a magnetic plate. Several reagents are also offered as kits with a magnetic plate included. Starter kits including multiple reagents and a magnetic plate are available as well.
