nanoTherics announced the launch of the magnefect-nano, a new device for
improved gene transfection. The system uses a unique technique, by applying
proprietary magnet configurations and oscillating array systems to promote
particle/DNA uptake into cells, significantly improving non-viral gene
transfection while maintaining cell viability. The system provides highly
improved transfection efficiency and effectiveness (up to 1000×) over the
best currently available cationic lipid agents at short transfection times,
according to the company.
This Product is made by:
nanoTherics Ltd was formed in August 2007 to exploit a novel gene transfection
technology arising from biomedical research at Keele University and the
University of Florida. The patented technology uses nanoparticles and
magnetic fields to facilitate the delivery of foreign DNA into living cells.
