General description

X-tremeGENE 360 Transfection Reagent is an innovative reagent that forms a complex with DNA or RNA and efficiently delivers the nucleic acids into animal or insect cells. With improved utility, X-tremeGENE 360 delivers high efficiency transfection in more cell types with low cytotoxicity.

Application

X-tremeGENE 360 Transfection Reagent is a high performance transfection reagent, free of animal-derived components.
  • Designed to transfect a broad range of eukaryotic cells, many cell lines not transfected well by other reagents, and hard-to-transfect cell lines, such as asK-562 and HepG2.
  • Can be successfully used in a variety of applications, such as gene expression analysis using transiently transfected cells, generating of stable cell lines, expression of siRNA for gene knockdown studies, and CRISPR gene-editing tools.
  • Produces minimal cytotoxicity or changes in morphology when adequate numbers of cells are transfected, eliminating the requirement to change media after adding the transfection complex.
  • Suitable for transient and stable transfection.
  • Functions well in the presence or absence of serum.

Features and Benefits

X-tremeGENE 360 Transfection Reagent is a high-performing, versatile and reliable solution for hard-to-transfect and common cell types. As a proven and reliable reagent, X-tremeGENE 360 allows researchers to avoid guesswork when performing transfection. In addition, X-tremeGENE 360 exhibits:
  • Peak performance in a broad range of cell types
  • Suitable for multiple applications
  • Efficient delivery of plasmid DNA, siRNA/miRNA and CRISPR/Cas9 components

Quality

Each lot of X-tremeGENE 360 Transfection Reagent is carefully tested following established quality procedures to ensure that the product is consistently performing according to specifications. During quality testing, cells are transfected with a reporter gene vector DNA using X-tremeGENE 360 Transfection Reagent (ratio 3:1 μL/μg DNA). Reporter gene activity is monitored via chemiluminescent detection. Using a standard curve, the total amount of recombinant protein is determined per well in order to meet specification.

Physical form

Supplied in 80% ethanol and sterile-filtered through 0.2 μm pore size membrane. Does not contain any ingredients of human or animal origin. Number of Tests: Using the standard procedure, 1 mL of X-tremeGENE 360 Transfection Reagent can be used to perform up to 10,000 transfections in 96-well plates.

Other Notes

For life science research only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

X-tremeGENE™ siRNA Transfection Reagent: A Powerful Tool for Antisense Inhibition of miRNA in Human Cells with miRCURY Knockdown Probes

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are an endogenous class of RNA molecules comprising 19-25 nucleotides that regulate the suitability or transflational efficiency of mRNAs.

Reverse Transfection of Plasmid DNA

Automation is used for many applications to reduce variation caused by manual handling and to obtain reproducible results in high-throughput assays. High-throughput applications, such as knockdown studies or target screenings, often include cell transfection.

A Versatile new Lipofection Reagent for co-transfection of DNA and RNA: X-tremeGENE™ siRNA Transfection Reagent

Small inhibitory RNAs (siRNAs) have become the focus of interest in many laboratories. For the first time, these molecules offer an easy way to knock down the expression of selected genes in mammalian cells without having to resort to classical gene knockout techniques.

Introduction to Cell Transfection

Transfection is the introduction of DNA, RNA, or proteins into eukaryotic cells and is used in research to study and modulate gene expression. Thus, transfection techniques and protocols serve as an analytical tool that facilitates the characterization of genetic functions, protein synthesis, cell growth and development.
