Top 7 Questions You Should Ask When Buying RNAI Reagents

article image Does the RNAi product provide transient silencing only or does it allow stable gene knockdown? Choice of RNAi products will be determined by whether you need to knockdown expression for several days or create a stable cell line.
article image Is the RNAi product suitable for your cells? How difficult it is to transfect your cells will determine the delivery method you require, such as tailored transfection reagent or lentiviral vector.
article image Ask if a ready-to-use product is already available; has the silencing of your gene(s) of interest already been validated and published?
article image Do the RNAi products guarantee a level of knockdown? What happens if you do not get the amount of gene silencing needed?
article image Are positive and negative controls provided with the RNAi products?
article image Does the RNAi product silence all known splice variants of my gene of interest and does it target the ORF or non-coding region of my gene?
article image How can I minimize the interferon response of RNAi transfection? shRNA instead of siRNA may be an option in some cases.
