Increase lentivirus titer 100X—no ultracentrifugation. Just mix your lentiviral supernatant with the lentivirus concentration reagent, incubate for a short period, and spin the mixture in a standard centrifuge.
Perform lentiviral transduction in only 30 min using the magnetic beads supplied with the Lenti-X Accelerator. Simply bind your viral supernatant to the beads and pull lentivirus or retrovirus to your cells with a magnet.
Coat your culture dish with this multivalent molecule to significantly increase transduction efficiency. RetroNectin co-localizes lentivirus (or retrovirus) particles with your target cell. Perfect for hard-to-transduce suspension cells and stem cells.
Efficiently transduce human cells with ecotropic retrovirus or lentivirus that otherwise could only infect rodent cells. The booster consists of concentrated exosome-like vesicles that are densely coated with the mCAT-1 receptor protein, the target for ecotropic viruses.
