Lentiviral vectors are one of the most commonly used viral vectors for therapeutic purposes because they have specific functional properties, such as the ability to infect non-dividing cells and packaging capabilities. RNA-based vectors are designed to safely and effectively deliver genes to mammalian cells. Several lentiviral vector-based therapies are now being developed and tested in humans. It is difficult to develop a dependable method for producing lentiviral vector-based therapeutics. Due to their low stability, purification of these 80-120 nm envelope vectors is problematic.
There are a variety of approaches to creating lentiviral vectors, but most of them follow the same fundamental steps with minor variations as needed. Alfa Chemistry has a skilled technical team available at all times to assist you in finding the optimum solution based on data and testing.
