Why use the Xfect siRNA Transfection Reagent?
- It’s effective—get better knockdown than with the leading competitor
- It’s easy—no optimization necessary
- It’s nontoxic—Xfect won’t kill your cells
Having good siRNA oligos is not enough. If you can’t deliver those siRNAs effectively, your experiment will fail. Xfect technology delivers siRNAs into a high percentage of your cells and has a very low cytotoxicity profile. Better yet, it’s pre-optimized so you don’t have to waste time on preliminary experiments.
Effective Gene Silencing
Many siRNA transfection reagents were designed for plasmid delivery and then sold for siRNA transfection, so they aren’t really optimized for siRNA transfection. The Xfect siRNA Transfection Reagent was specifically created for siRNA delivery—so it provides better results.
The Xfect siRNA Transfection Reagent was developed to maintain a very low cytotoxicity profile while delivering high rates of gene silencing. Don’t hesitate to transfect—your cells will survive it! (We routinely measure 100% viability for HeLa cells.)
Many siRNA transfection reagents require you to pre-test different ratios of siRNA oligo to reagent. But not the Xfect siRNA Transfection Reagent—we’ve pre-determined the best ratio for any size of plate or dish, so you can skip the preliminaries and get started with your experiment!
