Working with lentivirus experiences new heights with latest launches by SIRION Biotech.

SIRION Biotech has announced its novel lentivirus portfolio for the most sophisticated in vitro applications. Besides its (1) non-toxic transduction enhancer coined LentiBOOST™ , SIRION Biotech offers (2) premade lentivirus vectors and (3) custom services.

The latter allows for all possible modifications and applications ranging from complex and multiple genes expression to TET- inducible all-in-one vectors; lentivirus particles can be ordered directly or as basis for an entire cell line production. The finished cell lines come virus free and ready-to-use.

Genetic modification is a prerequisite for today's target research and cell based assay screening for compound development.

Viral vectors work both in vitro and in vivo, are versatile and warrant high gene delivery rates: The viruses' own infection machinery is being used to transport genetic material into the host cells.

Several viral vector platforms are in use: lentivirus lends itself to stable gene modifications as opposed to transient modifications like with adenovirus (AV) and adeno-associated virus (AAV).

Specialized service providers like SIRION Biotech are able to provide custom lentivirus and the resulting stable cell pools within a matter of weeks, premade lentiviral particles can be shipped literally over night.

The availability of such focused services allows for faster and more reliable research.

Viral vector technologies are applicable from drug discovery to food sciences and cosmetics developments.

Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.
Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
