nanoTherics has announced the launch of the magnefect-nano II DUO and the magnefect-LT DUO transfection systems which enable up to 192 transfection experiments to be performed in parallel.

These new, compact devices offer gene transfection with improved efficiencies and cell viabilities, even with a range of difficult cell types including neuronal and primary cells.

They use a unique technology which applies oscillating magnet arrays to promote magnetic nanoparticle/DNA uptake into cells to improve non-viral gene transfection, whilst maintaining high cell viability.

They are simple to use with low running costs (as low as $0.1 per transfection) providing improved transfection efficiency and effectiveness over the best currently available cationic lipids at short transfection times (<30 minutes).

They allow retransfection as well as adherent state transfection for user flexibility.

The magnefect-nano II DUO has been launched as a higher throughput version of the magnefect-nano II, which the Company introduced in September 2011, and provides full flexibility with interchangeable 2x6, 24 and 96-well magnet array formats and variable oscillating frequency capability to enable researchers to optimize protocols to maximize transfections specifically for the cell types they are using.

The magnefect-LT DUO is a lower cost system which has been launched as a higher throughput version of the magnefect-LT, which the Company introduced in January 2011, with fixed frequency oscillating frequency and fixed 2x6-well or 2x24-well or 2x96-well magnet array formats.

Dr Linda E Cammish, Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are very pleased to add the magnefect-nano II DUO and the magnefect LT DUO to our product portfolio to enable our customers to not only improve transfection efficiencies with hard to transfect cells such as neuronal and primary cells but also to increase the throughput of the transfection experiments they are conducting”.

She added, “The systems have been designed as a direct result of customer feedback. They are compact systems with all of the advantages of the magnefect-nano II and the magnefect LT oscillating magnet assisted transfection devices such as the high transfection efficiencies and cell viabilities, short transfection times and low running costs but with higher though-put capability.”
