Pancreas-targeted siRNA In Vivo Transfection Kit from Altogen Biosystems


3/6/2012 10:17:09 AM

LAS VEGAS, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Altogen Biosystems announced the launch of its new pancreas-targeted in vivo RNAi transfection system in the company's popular in vivo delivery product line for use in laboratories and research facilities for development of new medicines and testing in cells and animals. This in vivo reagent is designed for targeted siRNA delivery into pancreas, however it is also compatible for transfection of any negatively charged molecules including RNA, DNA, proteins, and small molecules.

The pancreas is very important hormone-secreting organ in the human body. Pancreatic diseases include: Diabetes, pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, and neoplasms. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States with a lowest survival rate of its victims than any other form of cancer. Researchers in diabetes, pancreatic cancer, and other pancreas disorders, are focused on discovering and developing new therapeutics for patients. Testing novel compounds require efficient and targeted delivery of pharmaceuticals into pancreas tissue (known as in vivo transfection).

Pancreas-targeted siRNA In Vivo Transfection Kit enables researchers to utilize in vivo transfection method to introduce DNA, RNA, and other molecules into pancreas cells. This liposome-based technology makes it possible to cross the cellular barriers and deliver genetic material, or a small interfering RNA (siRNA) into the cells for research or therapeutic purposes. Highly efficient targeted delivery of biomolecules to pancreas tissue is achieved via multiple administration routes: intravenous, intratumoral, intraperitoneal, or subcutaneous.
