We provide high quality, consistent viral vector services and are dedicated to the development and production of viral vectors for angiogenesis, stem cell & regenerative medicine and clinical renal research. Viral vectors are produced in a dedicated BL2 facility within the MMCRI building. Vector systems currently being used include adenovirus, retrovirus and lentivirus.
- Transfection and transduction of gene-specific viral DNA provided by principal investigators.
- Small, large and custom scale production of adenovirus, retrovirus and lentivirus (2nd & 3rd generation packaging).
- TCID50 titration of adenovirus
- Titration of retrovirus and lentivirus (fluorescence marker or antibiotic resistance)
- Test for replicaion competent virus (RCV) in lentivirus preparations.
