Cat. No. LV900
Name qPCR Lentivirus Titer Kit
Unit 100 rxn
Category qPCR Virus Titer Kits

The only kit on the market with complete elimination of NTC

abm’s qPCR Lentivirus Titer Kit is a one-step assay which employs a quick RNA extraction step that is followed by RT-qPCR. Designed to deliver high sensitivity and specificity, the kit ensures minimal non-specific background and better overall performance compared to similar kits on the market. ROX reference dye is provided separate from the MasterMix, making this kit universally compatible with most qPCR instruments.

Kit Features:

  • Saves time and eliminates inaccuracy: Quick RNA extraction
  • No NTC amplification: Eliminates non-specific (NTC) signals due to our unique primer design
  • Can be used directly on neat viral particles
  • Reduces variability: Ready-to-use reagent mix
  • RT-qPCR in one step: More sensitive and accurate than other methods
  • Contains dye comparable to SYBR Green™ and EvaGreen™

Customer Testimonials

"I recently received one of your qPCR Lentivirus Titration Kits and I think it is a wonderful product. The protocol is simple, fast, and accurate. I also really appreciate that there is an online titer calculator accompanying the kit on your website. The kit is allowing me to produce my own lentivirus, which is cheaper and more customizable."

- Kelly Taylor, Medical University of South Carolina


"We like the qPCR Lentivirus Titration(Titer) Kit. It is very easy to use and the titration can be completed in a short time."

- Ying Liu, University of Texas Health Science Center Houston


"We have been using Lentivirus qPCR kit to check our viruses for those viruses without reporter genes for a few years. The kit is very easy to use. We love it."

- Xinping Huang, Emory University


"I tested LV900 with the dilution that you suggested and also compared it to another method that measures the functional titer counting the viral integrations in the genome of HEK cells. Diluting the viral lysate solved my problems and improved my results. Now, I decided to use the kit for my future lentiviral titration. Thank you very much for your help and the great service!"

- Anna Schnaubelt, University Hospital Heidelberg
