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.
