Lentivirus Freeze-Thaw Protector

LentiGuard®, revolutionary solution blocking lentivirus quality deterioration

Lentivirus particles are damaged constantly and results in percentage of functional lentivirus particles decrease that is a big hurdle for, successfully and consistently, transducing target cells in vitro and in vivo. It has been challenging to keep lentivirus particles in excellent quality.

Recombinant lentivirus stock is more stable at ultra-low temperature, that is why lentivirus stock has to be snap-frozen in liquid nitrogen or dry ice/ethanol bath, and kept at ultra-low temperature, usually -60 °C to -90 °C. However, more than 50% lentiviral particles may loss function from just one freeze-thaw cycle. Lentivirus stocks become useless after several freeze-thaw cycles.

Cellomics Technology has developed a new product LentiGuard® that prevents lentivirus particle damage during lentivirus freeze-thaw cycles. Up to more than 70% lentivirus particles are in perfect functional status for transducing target cells even after six freeze-thaw cycles.
