TRANSFECTION REAGENTS FOR LEUKAEMIC CELLS
Among our host of nucleic acid delivery systems, we at RJH Biosciences have created effective transfection reagents specifically for attachment independent (suspension-growing) cells. As a synthetic amphiphilic polymer, Leu-Fect reagents were originally designed as siRNA transfection reagents. Further studies have proven Leu-Fect to be effective on adherent cells as well as for delivery of other types of nucleic acids.

Inhibiting Gene Expression with siRNA Delivery using Leu-Fect A in RS4:11, KG1A, and K562 Leukemia Cells
Reducing Colony Formation with Specific siRNAs in Primary Patient Cells Ex Vivo
Transfecting K562 Cells with GFP mRNA/pDNA using Lipofection and mRNA-Fect
CONSIDERATIONS FOR OPTIMIZING NON-VIRAL TRANSFECTIONS IN CULTURE
The efficiency of all transfection reagents depends on the cell type to be modified, nature of polynucleotide to be delivered, and cell culture conditions. The transfection conditions for each cell type should be optimized to ensure maximal gene expression (or silencing) while minimizing cellular toxicity. We have complied a list of factors that should be considered for optimum transfection efficacy, which can be accessed here.
