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
- Real-time qPCR: The number of genome copies in viral preparations was measured by SYBR green real-time qPCR with primers targeting the ITR. Titer values were deduced by comparing the genomic content of the viral preparation to a standard curve of a plasmid of known concentration. Read our AAV Titration by qPCR protocol here.
- Purity of viral preparation: Viral preparations were subjected to polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) followed by silver staining and the molecular weight and relative intensity of the viral capsid proteins was analyzed. The abundance of viral capsid proteins as a fraction of total protein present in the sample was used to determine purity of the AAV preparation.
- PCR confirmation of viral genome: PCR was carried out on the viral preparation with primers that only produce amplicons in the DIO orientation. The PCR products were visualized on an agarose gel for size confirmation.
