The incorporation of small liposomal carriers into the plasma membrane of mammalian cells is the idea behind all of ibidi’s Fuse-It products. Liposomal carriers are able to attach and instantly fuse with plasma membranes in a physicochemical-driven manner. ibidi’s new Fuse-It reagents efficiently use this mechanism and fuse with mammalian cell surfaces immediately upon contact. Therefore, this novel technique makes the transfer of molecules independent of biological processes, such as endocytosis, pinocytosis, or specific receptor binding.

"The incorporation of magnetic beads into cells for use in our magnetic tweezers experiments was extremely difficult and stressful for our cells. With Fuse-It-Beads, we can now easily perform the incorporation within a few minutes, making our experiments much easier and more reliable.”
