R&D Platform:
Viral Vector Facility

The Turku Viral Vector Facility produces lenti, adeno and retroviral vectors as a service to research labs. We deliver high titer, concentrated viruses ready to use in your experiments. Custom designed stably transduced cell lines with gene knockdown or overexpression are also be produced. We also produce Lenti-CRISPR-Cas9 gene modification tools. Our speciality areas are transduction of stem cells and primary cultures and we are happy to guide you to optimize transductions in your system of interest. For users wishing to work with viruses, we will train you in safe handling of viruses and provide a fully equipped and maintained Biosafety level 2 lab. The Viral Vector Facility is part of the Biocenter Finland Viral Gene Transfer network.
