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
