Lentiviral Particles for Fluorescent Cell Labeling

Clontech has partnered with Vectalys to provide highly pure, ready-to-use lentiviral particles that deliver bright fluorescent proteins to your target cells. Cells transduced with these particles will express a fluorescent protein in one of four colors; red (TdTomato or mCherry), green (ZsGreen1), cyan (AmCyan1), or yellow (ZsYellow1). The fluorescent proteins are predominantly expressed in the cytoplasm, allowing the cells to be labeled for cell tracing and tracking studies. For fluorescent labeling of specific cellular organelles or structures, visit the fluorescent subcellular labeling lentivirus page.

  • What does 109 TU/ml mean?
    • In each microliter there will be at least 1 x 106 functional lentivirus particles.
    • Each 60 µl kit is sufficient for 30 transductions (using an MOI of 10) in a 6-well plate containing 2 x 105 cells/well
  • Premium quality—produced using a multi-step purification process that results in:
    • Very high titer; functional titer of >1 x 109 transduction units per ml (TU/ml)
    • High purity - transduce target cells without cytotoxicity
    • >90% transduction efficiency even at very low M.O.I.
  • Functional titer provided, not a just a particle count
  • tdTomato and ZsGreen1 are exceptionally bright fluorescent proteins, 6x and 2.5x brighter than EGFP, respectively
  • These vectors have a puromycin resistance cassette and the stable clones integrating these constructs can be selected using Puromycin


  • Labeling and tracking hard-to-transfect mammalian cells using bright fluorescent proteins
