AAV

AAV vectors made available through the core carry AAV2 ITR elements serotyped with either AAV1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, or rh10 capsids. AAVs are purified by density gradient centrifugation, followed by FPLC chromatography. Featuring a number of fluorescent proteins, secreted and cytosolic luciferases, bicistronic constructs and tissue-specific promoters, our AAVs are useful for infecting cell cultures as well as tissues in living organisms.

Plasmid Prep

In order to achieve the highest viral titer possible, the MGH Vector Core requires sterile, endotoxin-free plasmid DNA from its customers. While commercial DNA prep kits are available, many labs find it more convenient and cost-effective to have us do this for them. Below is a table showing the cost for our Plasmid Preparation.

Starting material PHS price Non-PHS price
LB-agar plate $175 $252
Glycerol stock $175 $252
Mini-prepped DNA $175 $252
Maxi-prepped DNA $250 $360
