Lentiviral Packaging, Concentration & Transduction - LentiStarter™

Cambridge Bioscience offers a kit for researchers new to lentiviral work. Utilising a third-generation biosafe lentivector system, the highly convenient LentiStarter™ kit provides all the necessary components for HIV-based packaging, concentration and transduction for stable integration and expression to a wide range of mammalian cells.

Benefits of the Using LentiStarter™ 2.0 Kit
• Convenient, all-in-one sample kit for transducible lentiviral particle production
• 3rd generation lentiviral construct compatible
• Highly efficient delivery 3rd generation lentivector constructs
• Compatible with a wide range of mammalian cells
• High titer enabled (>10^9 IFU/ml) - suitable for in-vivo applications
• Flexibility - each product is available individually

LentiStarter™ 2.0 Component Summary
1. Virus packaging - pPACKH1 packaging mix (100 µl)
Packaging plasmid & pVSV-G envelope vector are used alongside the researchers own viral expression construct to co-transfect the 293TN producer cell lines (purchased separately) generating pantropic lentiviral particles.

2. PureFection plasmid transfection reagent (120 µl)
Co-transfect lentivector constructs with the pPACK™ packaging mix using Purefection into 293TN producer cells
3. Virus Concentration - PEG-it concentration solution (20 ml)
This solution concentrates lentivirus particles to a concentration necessary for transduction. The reagent concentrates lentiviral particles 10-100 fold & requires no specialist equipment.
