New Products: Altogen's siRNA Transfection Reagent; Exiqon's Stem Cell qPCR Panel

Premium

Altogen Biosystems has launched a new pancreas-targeted in vivo RNAi transfection reagent.

According to the company, the reagent was designed to deliver siRNAs into the pancreas, but is compatible for transfection of any negatively charged molecules including RNA, DNA, proteins, and small molecules.


Exiqon announced the availability of stem cell-focused microRNA PCR panels.

The panels contain “all relevant” stem cell miRNAs in 96- and 384-well plates, according to the firm.
