Concentrated lentiviral particles carrying the GFP and hygromcyin resistance.


  • Volume 50 µL
  • Titer ≥1×10⁷ TU/mL
  • Pricing $150 USD for preparation of 50 µL virus + $30 USD for plasmid.
  • Storage Store at -80℃. Thaw just before use and keep on ice.
  • Shipment Viral particles are shipped frozen on dry ice. Plasmid DNA (≥ 200ng) will also be included in the shipment.

Viral Production & Use

  • Packaging Plasmids psPAX2 (plasmid #12260)
  • Envelope pMD2.G (plasmid #12259)
  • Buffer Opti-Pro SFM
  • Selectable Marker Hygromycin
  • Purification Lentivirus was harvested from cell culture medium (DMEM + 10% FBS). Lentiviral particles were then collected by precipitation in polyethylene glycol (PEG) followed by centrifugation. Precipitated pellets containing viral particles were resuspended in PBS.


Requestor is responsible for compliance with their institution's biosafety regulations. Lentivirus is generally considered BSL-2. AAV is generally considered BSL-1, but may require BSL-2 handling depending on the insert. Biosafety Guide

Viral Quality Control

Titering Method:
  • PCR confirmation of insert: PCR was carried out with primers targeting the CMV promoter and WPRE. The PCR product was visualized on an agarose gel for size confirmation.
    Forward Primer: Hygro-internal-F GCGCCGATGGTTTCTACAAA
