Thanks to the excellent work of our collaborators at City of Hope, we are now shipping SARS-CoV-2 pseudovirus. This critical research tool allows for the study of CoV-2 without BSL-3 facilities and without handling potentially infectious material. The pseudovirus works by expressing SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein on the surface of another virus. Its function has been confirmed by viral entry assays in Vero E6 cells, and expressing Luciferase as a reporter. Control virus is also included with shipment. GFP is available on request.
We are also developing the ability to run viral attachment and entry assays with the pseudovirus to test therapeutic potential of different candidate small molecules and biologics.
Please contact us if you are interested in Pseudovirus and / or viral assays.
