Virus Packaging Tools
Lentiviral and retroviral vectors are one of the most efficient vehicles for gene transfer in mammalian cells both in vitro and in vivo. Lentiviral vectors are capable of infecting both non-dividing and dividing cells, whereas retroviral vectors can only infect dividing cells. This means that lentivirus can infect a greater variety of cell types than retrovirus.
Through years of experience with lentiviral and retroviral vectors, we have developed our own proprietary virus packaging systems and efficient protocols for rapid generation of pseudoviral particles. A suite of products has been developed for researchers to package their own viruses. These products include: Transfection reagents, lentiviral expression vectors, lentiviral reporter plasmids, viral packaging mixes, and other reagents.
