Nanocin RNA
No compromise on maintaining cell viability
Effectively non-toxic and designed to be compatible with clinical development, Nanocin RNA is an innovative new RNA transfection agent.

A poor trade-off between efficacy and toxicity in the transfection process can drastically affect an experiment’s performance and outcome. Because Nanocin RNA doesn’t compromise cell viability, it avoids these issues, giving you more accurate results and an easier protocol.

Unlike other commonly used transfection reagents, Nanocin RNA is safe to use in vitro with even the most sensitive primary cells, allowing you to translate results from lab to clinic with absolute confidence.

Discover how Nanocin RNA can improve the performance and integrity of your experiments.


  • Effectively non-toxic, allowing for repeated transfections with no need to replace media after transfection
  • GMP compliant and highly suited to clinical development
  • Rapid and streamlined protocol

Nanocin RNA

More info

Combining siRNA with the Nanocin RNA reagent results in rapid self-assembly of nanoparticles. This significantly enhances delivery of nucleic acid cargos into a wide range of mammalian cell types versus other leading reagents.

Nanocin RNA has a rapid protocol, transfecting siRNA into cells at the time of splitting or seeding thanks to being effectively non-toxic. This reduces the process of a standard protocol by several steps, saving you time in the lab and boosting long term yield.

Efficient and robust, Nanocin RNA can be used for repeated transfections with no detrimental impact on the cells, reducing the need for repeat purchase of transfection reagent.

The rapid protocol for Nanocin RNA halves the time of a standard reagent protocol, reducing the process by several steps; saving you time in the lab and boosting long term yield.

Nanocin RNA is suitable for siRNA transfection in a wide range of cell types and cell lines, including:

  • HeLa
  • HL116
  • Primary adipocytes
  • Myotubes
  • Granulosa cell line
  • Primary human immune cells
  • A549
  • HTC-116
