mRNA based live cell stain - Viromer® Cytostain

mRNA based live cell stain - Viromer® Cytostain

Lipocalyx's Viromer® Cytostain is an mRNA based live cell staining solution for the staining of targeted subcellular compartments. With mRNAs encoding for fluorescent fusion proteins precomplexed to Viromer® nanoparticles, expression is strong, fast and transient with minimal toxicity and no need to fix cells. Providing an alternative to chemical staining, Viromer® Cytostain is the only mRNA-based biological staining method commercially available.

Benefits of using Viromer® Cytostain
• Biological live cell staining of subcellular compartments
• mRNAs encoding for fluorescent proteins
• Fast, strong & transient expression - as early as 4h, peak at 16h, up to 52h
• Non-viral
• No need to fix cells
• Possibility of any downstream experiments
• Minimal toxicity with no chemical disruption
• Ready-to-use lyophilised product
• Straightforward protocol
