Next generation non-invasive DNA collection device

The most popular way to collect DNA is drawing blood. Not very pleasant for the patient, as we have all noticed, and it also requires an experienced person, a nurse. Alternatively, saliva sampling can be used to collection DNA, with the advantage of being painless, but so far yields have been highly variable, lower than with blood, and kits were quite expensive. Not any more!

Cost-efficient pre-optimized transfection reagents

The main challenge when choosing a transfection reagent is that we don’t know how it will work with our own cell type of interest. It is also time consuming to find the optimal conditions.

Well, here’s the solution: pre-optimised transfection reagentsThey already cover more than 39 cell types including MEF, Caco-2, MCF-7, HepG2, Primary Macrophages, Huh-7 and many others.

Two top ways to success with knock-out

In this post, Dimitri looks at an article published recently about genome editing. The authors made a clear and fair comparion of several KO strategies, covering several options. Our specialist goes through the various options available to scientists, and the best ones to choose. [ Read more ]

From RNA-derived iPS Cells to Retinal Cells

Recent studies show that RNA Reprogramming using Stemgent's RNA Reprogramming technology yields high-quality iPS cells that can be used to develop physiologically relevant models for eye disease. These studies are the most comprehensive analysis to date of the derivation of functional retinal cells using iPS cells, and demonstrate the utility of human iPS cells from retinal disease modeling in general. [ Read more... ]


Circulating miRNA (cmiRNA) may bring new hope for modern medicine, but still a lot of research has to be done to determine the specific signature for each pathology, and also depending on the patient background. Obviously, cmiRNA profiling is a key step and requires sensitive and reproducible method. Sequencing, qRT-PCR, several kind of microarrays… 

Let’s explore together the best approach
