viral-service-icon-v3.png Viral Service: Serotype Testing AAV


These AAV encode fluorescent reporters and can be used to compare the tropism of different serotypes. In addition to the standard 100 µL sample size, the vectors listed below are also available as 20 µL. The 20 µL option is an economical choice that can be used to validate the performance of various serotypes before conducting larger scale experiments. For more information, see our full AAV inventory or our AAV production page.

Note: For a list of all 100 µL sized sample, please see our Control AAV Inventory. The catalog ID for the 20 µL sized testing sample is denoted with a .T suffix (for example, AAV1.T). The catalog ID for the 100 µL sized sample does not have the suffix (for example, AAV1).


AAV Vectors for Serotype Testing


pAAV-CAG-GFP (Plasmid #37825)

Description: Ready-to-use AAV in various serotypes suitable for direct injection. These AAV are made from plasmid 37825 (deposited by Edward Boyden) and direct GFP expression from the CAG promoter. For information about each catalog item, including the titer and quality control, visit the material page (linked for each catalog ID below).

*Each viral service request will also include virus associated DNA (vdna), which is a sample of the purified DNA from the original plasmid that was used to make the virus. For more details, see our FAQ on What is virus associated DNA, and why do I have to order it?
