ViroMag Transduction Reagent is a magnetic nanoparticles formulation dedicated to increase virus infection and transduction capacities; it is suitable for all viruses. Based on the Magnetofection™ technology, this reagent allows concentrating the complete applied dose of viral particles onto cells within minutes, inducing a significant improvement of virus transduction with extremely low vector doses. Due to its specific properties, ViroMag is ideal to infect non permissive cells. This reagent demonstrates an exceptionally high efficiency to promote, control and assist viral transductions so that no molecular biology processes or biochemical modifications are required. 

 Increases transduction efficiency

  • Accelerates the transduction process
  • Efficient for hard-to-infect and non-permissive cells
  • Concentrates the viral dose onto the cells
  • Suitable for all type of virus
  • Synchronise cells adsorption/infection without modifications of the viruses

Results

ViroMag Transduction resultsFigure 1: ViroMag enhances adenoviral infection. K562, PBL and NIH-3T3 cells were infected with an adenovirus alone (Ad-LacZ) or with complexes of adenovirus and 3 μL of ViroMag. Cells were submitted or not to magnetic field and beta-Galactosidase expression was determined 24H after infection.
