Rapidly purifies a critical viral vector used in gene therapy and vaccine development
Millipore Corp. announced the availability of the new Fast-Trap Virus Purification and Concentration Kit for adeno-associated virus (AAV). Recombinant AAV is a preferred class of viral vectors used for gene therapy and vaccination purposes. Recently, improved recombinant AAV vectors have gained rapid popularity in gene therapy because of their lack of pathogenicity, wide range of infectivity, and ability to establish long-term transgene expression. Purifying virus after propagation in host cells is a critical step towards using it as a vector for genetic modification of target cells. Fast-Trap Virus Purification and Concentration Kits contain all the components to accommodate the entire virus purification workflow. Fast-Trap Kits are also available for adenovirus and lentivirus. All Fast-Trap kits contain the reagents and devices necessary to purify virus from cellular contaminants and the expressed recombinant transgene. The kits yield concentrated virus in the exchange buffer of choice that is suitable for in vitro and animal studies.
