Lentiviral Vectors & Virus

As a leader in lentiviral technology, abm offers an affordable, comprehensive collection of human, mouse and rat genes cloned into ready-to-use lentiviral vectors or packaged lentivirus for gene over-expression studies within a wide range of host cells. Our standard Lentivirus Collection constructs are available with CMV or EF1a promoter with the option of a GFP reporter.

Search our Ready-to-Use Libraries by selecting the appropriate dropdowns and entering the gene name, symbol or accession number:

Advantages of the Lentivirus System:

  • Large insert capacity (up to 9kb)
  • High infection efficiency
  • Broad host range (dividing, non-dividing, stem cells, and primary cells)
  • Stable integration & expression of recombinant proteins
  • Ideal for the creation of stable cell lines

I also need an empty vectors as a control, how do I go about ordering this?
Please see our listings of available blank control vectors and viruses. We can also produce custom control vectors upon request, please email [email protected] with specific inquiries
Which packaging system should I use, 2nd or 3rd generation?
All of abm's lentviral vectors are compatible with 2nd and 3rd generation packaging systems LV003 and LV053 available from abm . Please note, only packaging mixes produced by abm have been tested in house and therefore carry our guarantee for high titer virus production. If it is desirable to use other packaging plasmids obtained from a different source, the compatibility must be tested and determined by the end user.
