Suspension cells have to be made adherent first by incubating them with the reagent MATra-S Immobilizer which contains magnetic nanoparticles (MagTag®). Then, either Magnet Assisted Transfection with MATra-A Reagent/MATra-si Reagent or Magnet Assisted Lipofection with MA Lipofection Enhancer and IBAfect or any other commercially available lipofection reagent can be performed. For the transfection procedure a MATra magnet plate is essential.
All MATra reagents with magnetic beads have to be stored distant (> 10 cm) from strong magnetic fields like the Magnet Plates at all times!!! Otherwise agglutination of the beads may lead to complete loss of transfection function.
