Novel reagent formulation allows researchers to develop assays in more cell lines of interest

Promega Corporation announces ViaFect™ Transfection Reagent, a tool for efficient DNA transfer into a wide variety of cell lines, including challenging suspension cells and stem cell-derived lines. ViaFect Transfection Reagent allows researchers to develop transfection-based assays in the cell line most relevant for their biology of interest.

Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cell models, such as Cellular Dynamics International's iCell® Cardiomyocytes, show robust transfection with ViaFect Transfection Reagent, enabling assays not possible with other reagents.

This low toxicity reagent allows cells to stay healthy and metabolically active during transfection-based experiments, even at low cell densities, facilitating experiments where extended application of a treatment is needed. Cell viabilities of greater than 90% are routinely observed following transfection with ViaFect Transfection Reagent.

ViaFect Transfection Reagent requires minimal optimization with a simple three-step protocol. It does not require removal of serum, removal of culture medium or washing after introduction of the reagent/DNA complex. ViaFect Transfection Reagent contains no animal-derived components. 

A poster detailing results using ViaFect Transfection Reagent will also be presented at the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening Conference and Exhibition to be held January 18th-22nd in San Diego, CA.

Scientific News
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
Improving Regenerative Medicine
Lab-created stem cells may lack key characteristics, UCLA research finds.
Muscles on-a-Chip
This study may help explain why stem cell-based therapies have so far shown limited benefits for heart attack patients in clinical trials.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma
A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.
Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope
By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer
New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.
Edited Stem Cells Offer Hope of Precision Therapy for Blindness
Findings raise the possibility of treating blinding eye diseases using a patient's own corrected cells as replacement tissue.
