Viro-MICST Transduction Reagent allows genetically modifying cells directly on magnetic cell purification columns. Based on the i-MICST™ Technology (Integrated Magnetic Immuno-Cell Sorting and Transfection/Transduction), this technology combines cell isolation and genetic modification in one simple and reliable integrated system. For efficient and selective gene delivery to target cells, Viro-MICST can be used in combination with any viral vector and allows you to reduce cell manipulation steps and save time and material.

Figure 1: PBMC selective transduction with Viro-MICST. Human PBMC were labeled with either CD45, CD2 or CD15 microbeads. Each condition was then loaded into i) one unmodified MACS® LS column, and selected cells were then infected using standard lentiviral (standard infection) or ii) one unmodified MACS® LS column followed by a MACS® LS column modified with Viro-MICST/ LV.eGFP complexes. Infection efficiency was measured by flow cytometry.
Figure 2: hUC-MSC adenoviral transduction improvedby viroMICST. 1x106 hUC-MSC cells were transduced at different MOI using either standard adenoviral infection procedure or i-MICST. Pictures show hUC-MSCs 2 days after transduction with both procedures at a MOI of 2 (10X).
