The BLOCK-iT™ Transfection Optimization Kit is designed to optimize RNAi transfection using controls for transfection and viability. Each kit contains a BLOCK-iT™ Fluorescent Oligo, which provides:

• A strong, easily detectable FITC signal indicating transfection efficiency
• Chemical modifications for a clearer, more persistent cellular signal than labeled siRNA provides
• Proven correlation of transfection efficiency with Stealth RNAi™ siRNA and traditional siRNA molecules

This makes BLOCK-iT™ Fluorescent Oligo an ideal indicator of transfection efficiency for RNAi experiments. In addition, the kit contains a Positive Control Stealth RNAi™ siRNA molecule directed at human p53 and a Scrambled Stealth RNAi™ siRNA molecule as a negative control. To assay cell viability, Dead Cell Dye is included. This dye colors dead cells as red, thereby allowing easy identification of non-viable cells in a tissue culture plate. Using these reagents together allows you to both optimize transfection conditions and have a functional positive control in every RNAi experiment you perform.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
