Other Products and Services

Titers

The VVC offers titering services for Ad5, AAV, and Lentivirus. Please consult with us if you need this service.  

Cloning

The VVC offers design and cloning services for plasmids intended for viral vector construction. Shuttles are available in adenovirus, FIV based lentivirus,  adeno-associated virus, Helper-Dependent Adenovirus and Vaccinia. Cloning can also be performed on shuttles provided by the investigator if these are compatible with the VVC virus construction packaging plasmids. Pricing is dependent on the complexity and size of the intended insert. Gene synthesis of the insert and subcloning are often contracted out as a cost and time effective method to complete the project. The constructed plasmid is sent to the investigator for expression testing prior to virus construction.  

RNA Design

The VVC can aid in the design and vector construction of RNAi vectors. The VVC staff can design the sequences based on your specific DNA target for high potency and low off target effects. The design is performed utilizing the siSPOTR tool developed by Dr. Beverly Davidson’s Laboratory. The sequences can be designed as artificial microRNA, short hairpin RNA or short interfering RNA and can be cloned into any vector shuttle. The constructed plasmid is sent to the investigator for knockdown testing prior to virus construction. 

Sequencing

VVC staff can aid with limited sequencing and map construction, when needed, to meet the submission requirements of a map and sequence for each new construct.

Maxi Preps

High quality endotoxin free maxi preps suitable for a single prep of virus production can be outsourced to Genscript by quote. 

Restriction Digests

VVC staff can aid with the required restriction digest upon submission for vector construction. We do a panel of 2-3 single digests to confirm the plasmid agrees with the submitted sequence for $50 per plasmid.
