Viral Vector Production

  • Closed, biosafe system that fits in a standard incubator
  • Serum free medium
  • Precise control of pH for optimum infections

The production of viral vectors for research purposes using conventional methods such as T flasks or roller bottles consumes significant amounts of time and space.

Example: Adenovirus

Produce 1-3×10^13 virus particles, equal to 20 roller bottles. When 293 cells are adapted to suspension culture, large quantities of adenoviral vectors can be produced in a single FiberCell® Systems cartridge. High cell density makes for rapid and uniform infection kinetics within the ECS of the cartridge.
