Steam Cell Core This centralized service features the development and production of viral vectors necessary for gene transfer in research experiments and pre-clinical studies. Expert staff can help investigators plan and develop vectors that fit with individual project requirements. The Vector Core also enables the design and manufacture of novel vectors and purified recombinant retrovirus and lentivirus. Quality control testing includes vector titering and replication-competent retrovirus and lentivirus assays.
