  • For non Cedars-Sinai external users, please inquire for price information.
  • Lenti/retro vector: 2-3 weeks turnaround time for vector production (for one step cloning custom vector production 3-4 weeks turnaround time).  Four plate scale titer is 10e6 - 10e7 in 200 ul.
  • Maximum insert size for lenti vector is <4 kb (including promoter, gene, polyA). Sub-optimum (larger size/toxic) inserts will adversely affect the yield.
  • Titer will be based on p24 ELISA.

Adeno first generation vector: Maximum insert size is 8 kb. Turnaround time for viral amplification is 2 months.

Custom vector cloning, DNA transfection and viral amplification with gene provided is 3-4 months from the commencement of production. Without the gene provided, timing is 4-5 months.

Users will not be billed until the virus is made. BSL2 biosafety containment required. Users should have biosafety approval through the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC).
