Rapid Viral Titers

  • The gold standard viral titer method, the plaque assay, and other methods (TCID50) that are used to quantitate infectivity:
    • Take 5-10 days to produce an answer
    • Require a significant amount of skilled labor
    • Are subject to operator error and significant variability
    • Have low throughput – cannot easily be automated
    • Have a high cost per test

 

  • LumaCyte’s Radiance™ instrument:
    • Can detect and quantitate viral infection in mammalian cells in minutes
    • Is a rapid, automated system for the detection of viral loads, providing quick feedback on the viral infectivity of mammalian cells
    • Generates results that correlate closely with viral titer from plaque assay
    • Continuously monitors real-time viral load in bioreactors in order to optimize harvest time for maximal product yield
    • Is a useful tool for viral vector research/development and production
