Quantitative lentivirus titers in minutes
Lentiviral vectors have proven to be powerful tools for stable gene transfer to both dividing and non-dividing cells in vitro and in vivo. Until now, tests for measuring lentivirus titer were complicated and convoluted—it could take several hours to days, depending on the method used, to deliver only a single quantitative result.
Applying Novarum’s patented image-capture technology now enables Takara Bio’s rapid tests to provide accurate, quantitative lentivirus titers in only ten minutes with virtually no effort.
