Meet your friendly neighborhood gene delivery crew!

Posted by Applied Biological Materials (abm) on January 10, 2019


Delivering genes into cells isn’t easy—especially when the gene is bulky and sticky or if the cell is stubborn and curmudgeonly. But, not to worry, our gene delivery crew is so charming that your cells will lay down the welcome mat!

Check back each week as we introduce you to your friendly neighborhood gene delivery crew: Lentivirus, Adenovirus, AAV, Retrovirus, HSV, Baculovirus, Protein Vector, and ORF. Each member has its own expertise—get to know the crew so you can deploy the right crew-member to the right culture dish!

First up is our resident charmer of mammalian cells, Lentivirus:
