  • Regulates packaging in transcriptional level
  • Works for both lenti-and retro-viral packaging
  • Increases viral particle production up to 10-fold
  • Achieve high titer at low cost
  • Novel cocktail of small molecules
  • Easy to use

ViralBoost Reagent (500X) is a novel cocktail of small molecules that is used for high titer virus production and is a powerful, broadly applicable reagent for effective virus packaging. It stably regulates the viral RNA packaging on the transcriptional level, which can greatly enhance production of either retro- or lenti-viral particles up to 10 fold. The easy-to-use protocol makes ViralBoost Reagent well-suited for various scales of virus packaging.
