Lentiviral vectors

Lentiviral vectors are highly versatile cargo delivery vehicles that can manipulate gene expression and fluorescently mark cells in vitro and in vivo.  We hold in house trial stocks of lentiviral and adenoviral vectors that can be tested in your experimental system before customizing to your individual project requirements. Our methods and approach are backed up by proven expertise evidenced by years of experience and publications and we can offer a choice of numerous fluorescent tags; different expression systems, including a choice of promoter and inducibility and either over expression of your gene of interest or knock-down.
