Lentiviral Packaging Systems
Our ViraSafe™ Lentiviral Packaging Systems utilize 3rd generation lentiviral technology to create recombinant lentivirus when co-transfected along with your 3rd generation lentiviral expression vector. Unlike most commercially available 3rd generation packaging systems, our lentiviral packaging systems are provided as separate plasmids, not a mixture. This allows you to amplify each plasmid individually and eliminates the need to re-order a packaging mixture.
We offer two lentiviral packaging systems:
- A Pantropic Lentiviral Packaging System which results in a VSVG-pseudotyped lentivirus capable of infecting cells of any species
- An Ecotropic Lentivlral Packaging System which results in a recombinant lentivirus which only readily infects mouse or rat cells; if you have no plans to infect human cells, this provides an added level of safety
If you also need a lentiviral expression vector, consider one of our Lentiviral Expression Complete Systems which contain everything provided in our packaging systems plus your choice of 11 different expression vectors.
