Gene Vector and Virus Core  

Care and Handling of Viruses

Some viruses are quite fragile because they have lipid membranes.  Therefore, it is important to know how to store and use them.  The virus core can generate high quality viruses but if they are not stored and used properly they may be inactived.  The links below describe proper storage and use of AAVs, lentiviruses, and retroviruses.
