Magnetofectamine™ O2 is the new powerful transfection kit designed for primary and hard-to-transfect cells. The alliance of MTX transfection reagent and CombiMag leads to increased transfection efficiency, minimized toxicity and enhanced gene expression. The process consists of CombiMag, a magnetic formulation based on the Magnetofection™ technology, binding to MTX transfection reagent and DNA complexes. Under the application of a magnetic field, the genetic material is concentrated onto cells and cellular uptake is promoted. This kit must be used with a magnetic plate. A starter kit including the Magnetofectamine™ O2 kit and an 8x12cm magnetic plate is available.

Please note: The Magnetofectamine™ O2 kit replaces the original Magnetofectamine™ kit, which included Lipofectamine™ 2000 and CombiMag Transfection Reagent.

Figure 1: Magnetofectamine O2 transfection efficiency.

Figure 2: As the magnetic force drives the gene vector towards the target cells, Magnetofectamine™ O2 allows the vector dose to concentrate onto the cell very rapidly and triggers delivery via endocytosis. Consequently, high transfection efficiencies can be achieved with lower amounts of nucleic acids.
