Viral Packaging

The Dharmacon Trans-Lentiviral Packaging System efficiently generates replication-incompetent lentiviral particles to deliver and express an shRNA or ORF (open reading frame) construct in either dividing or non-dividing mammalian cells.

Trans-Lentiviral shRNA Packaging Kits

  • Trans-Lentiviral shRNA Packaging System

    Package your shRNA viral vector constructs into high-titer lentiviral particles for efficient transduction and gene silencing in the cell or tissue type of interest.

  • Trans-Lentiviral ORF Packaging System

    Package your ORF viral vector constructs into high-titer lentiviral particles for efficient transduction and gene expression in the cell or tissue type of interest.
