Viral Quality Control

Titering Method:
  • ddPCR assay: 293T cells were transduced with serial dilutions of 153011-LV, harvested several days later, and genomic DNA was isolated. Copies of RRE were measured and normalized to RPP30.
  • PCR confirmation of insert: PCRs were carried out on the viral preparation with primers targeting the Cas9 and TagBFP genes to confirm inserts and primers targeting the EF1a promoter and the ACE2 guide to confirm the backbone and guide sequences. The PCR products were visualized on an agarose gel for size confirmation.
