Metafectene® SI? consists of a lipid blend designed
and optimized especially for siRNA and miRNA transfection. Unlike for
conventional DNA transfection, transport of the nucleic acid into the
cell nucleus is not necessary for RNA transfection. The development of Metafectene® SI?
was thus primarily aimed at maximizing the endocytosis volume of the
lipoplex plus ensuring rapid and complete release of RNA in the cytosol.
High knockdown rates with low RNA and reagent amounts combined with low toxicity make Metafectene® SI? an ideal tool to be used for all cell lines and primary cells.
Screening processes benefit both from this timesaving and from the fact that the lipoplex formation, and thus all pipetting steps, take place in the well of a multiwell culture plate, eliminating the need for rinsing or transfer. siRNA or miRNA transfection can thus be performed during screening with the maximum efficiency and ease.
