The Solution for Neuron Transfection - NeuroMag

Primary neurons in culture are considered to be a highly relevant model in the study of neuronal development and activity. They can be cultivated and differentiated in vitro but are difficult to transfect using conventional methods.

NeuroMag is a transfection reagent suitable for neurons from 1 DIV to 21 DIV. It has proven to be extremely efficient in transfecting a large variety of primary neurons such as cortical, hippocampal, dorsal root ganglion and motor neurons with all types of nucleic acids. Moreover, high transfection efficiency has also been achieved in primary astrocytes, oligodendrocyte precursors or neural stem cells as well as other cell lines (C6, B65, PC12, N2A...).

Features and Benefits

- Great efficiency, ideal for primary neurons.
- High transfected neurons viability.
- Efficient from 6 DIV to 21 DIV.
- Long transgene expression (up to 7 days).
- Non-toxic and completely biodegradable.
- Ready-to-use, straightforward and rapid.

NeuroMag Magnetic Transfection Reagent is available in 3 sizes:

- 1 ml     Product Code: NM51000                   

- 500uL  Product Code: NM50500             

- 200uL  Product Code: NM50200

Magnetofectin Product Range

Neuromag uses a Magnetofection technology. This requires an appropriate magnetic field that magnetizes the nanoparticles in solution, forms a very strong gradient to attract the nanoparticles onto cells and covers all the surface of the culture dish. Optimized magnetic plates with tailored properties have been specifically designed for Magnetofection, please see here
