Transfection (Nucleic Acids)  -  A Delivery Problem

Transfection:  The process of delivering foreign Nucleic Acids into Cells

Transfection success visual

The Problem:  Based on electrostatics (negative charged cells and negative charged Nucleic Acids)

Transfection failure visual

The Solution:

  1. Make a high positive charge complex of lipids or polymer with nucleic acids.
  2. The high positive charge complex adheres to negatively charged cells

All commercial products are based on this electrostatic principle – problem: highly toxic – low viability and efficiency.
