Magnet Assisted Transfection (MATra)
Magnet Assisted Transfection (MATra) is an extremely gentle, easy-to-handle, fast and highly efficient technology to transfect cells in culture. Using this new technique, nucleic acids are in a first step associated with specific magnetic nanoparticles (MagTag®). Exploiting magnetic force the full nucleic acid dose is then drawn towards and delivered into the target cells leading to efficient transfection without disturbing the membrane architecture, without causing chromosomal damage or leaving a hole in the cell membrane like other transfection technologies.
Magnet Assisted Transfection-MATra is a gentle, easy and efficient transfection technology.
