|Details on the topic or technology covered:||
Scientific and technical barriers to understanding human biology are being removed. The commercial availability of highly pure human tissue cells, such as iCell® Cardiomyocytes and iCell DopaNeurons, has introduced physiologically relevant cellular models into basic research, early drug discovery and development, and late-stage pre-clinical studies. Genetic manipulation of these cell models using ViaFect™ Transfection Reagent, an advanced lipid-based transfection technique enabling highly efficient and low toxicity transfection of reporter constructs and markers, offers the opportunity to build relevant human cell models that recapitulate disease phenotypes and enable rapid and quantitative analysis of biological pathways.
Scientists from Cellular Dynamics International and Promega co-presented this webinar describing the application and advantages of genetically manipulating human iCell products with ViaFect. You will walk away with:
New insight into highly efficient and low toxicity transfection of human cells
Examples of multiplexing cellular changes with functional readouts
New techniques for easy implementation of relevant human biology into workflows
