Discovery of potent new materials for in vivo delivery of nucleic acids depends upon successful formulation of the active molecules into a dosage form suitable for the physiological environment. Due to the inefficiencies of current formulation methods, materials are usually first evaluated for in vitro delivery efficacy as simple ionic complex with the nucleic acids (lipoplexes). The predictive value of such assays, however, has never been systematically studied. Here for the first time, by developing a microfluidic method that allowed the rapid preparation of high quality siRNA-containing lipid nanoparticles(LNPs) for a large number of materials, we showed that gene silencing assays employing lipoplex result in a high rate (~90%) of false negatives that can largely be avoided through formulation. Seven novel materials with in vivo gene silencing potency >90% at a dose of 1.0 mg/kg in mice were discovered. This method will facilitate the discovery of next generation reagents for LNP-mediated nucleic acid delivery.
