- Gene knockdown – simplified workflow for guaranteed results
- Extended-duration silencing – low toxicity enables multiple dosing up to 30 days
Accell gene silencing workflow
The power of Accell siRNA lies in the simplicity of it's workflow
To achieve guaranteed target gene knockdown, simply combine Accell siRNA stock solution with Accell siRNA delivery media to a recommended 1µM working concentration. Then add Accell delivery mix directly to cells and incubate for 72 hours.
Delivery may be inhibited by the presence of BSA in serum. Optimization with serum-free media formulations (Accell Delivery Media) or < 2.5% serum in standard media is recommended. Full-serum media may be added back after 48 hours of incubation mRNA silencing is achieved by 72 hours, with optimal protein knockdown observed around 96 hours.

Accell siRNA - Achieving Long-term Gene Silencing - Application Note
Long-term gene knockdown is important when understanding the gene function, but lentiviral approaches are not always possible. In this document we demonstrate how to get 30 day gene down regulation by repeated application of Accell modified siRNA without affecting the viability of the cells
