ScreenFect™ A
ScreenFect™ A is a transfection reagent composed of new cationic lipids. It is applicable to cell lines from various eukaryotic species and can be added directly to media containing antibiotics and sera. It works with DNA and siRNA and can show highly efficient transfection in common cell lines, stem cells, blood cells, microglia and primary culture cells. Because of low toxicity, media changes after transfection are not required.

Hypoxic Cell Culture Using Incubator With Precision Low O2 Control
By Stacey Willard, Linette Philip, and Ma Sha
Oxygen is a critical regulator of cellular homeostasis, and as such, oxygen deprivation is lethal to normal cells. In contrast to normal tissues, solid tumors often have regions of significantly reduced oxygenation due to an inconsistent and disorganized blood supply at the center of the tumor.
