Custom CRISPR sgRNA Lentiviral Vectors & Viruses

abm carries a variety of CRISPR lentivectors and lentiviruses that will streamline your CRISPR gene editing experiments, including gene knockout, activation, repression and epigenetic modifications. Choose from our All-in-One system or our sgRNA only expression system and pair the latter with a Cas9-Expressing Stable Cell Lines or spCas9 Nuclease. Just tell us what you want to accomplish and we'll do the sgRNA design, cloning and viral packaging for you!

The lentivirus offers several advantages including: the ability to infect both dividing and non-dividing cells in vitro and in vivo and allows for stable integration into the host genome resulting in long-term construct expression even in difficult to infect cell lines. Lentivectors on the other hand, can be transfected into the desired cell line resulting in transient expression which can later be diluted out.

Other Available CRISPR Lentivirus Systems:

•Gene Knockout using spCas9
•Gene Activation using dCas9-SAM
•Gene Repression using dCas9-KRAB
•Epigenetic Gene Repression using dCas9-DNMT3A
•Epigenetic Gene Activation using dCas9-TET1CD

"I have used abm's All-in-One lentiviral system to knockout human IL11, which worked really well. Our labmate also ordered the same system from abm to knockout mouse Axl, and she got good results, too. Thus, we want to stick to the same system."

Additional Info



What promoter(s) do your sgRNA and All-in-One lentivectors have?
sgRNAs are expressed from the U6 promoter and All-in-One lentivectors and lentiviruses express Cas9 from the SFFV promoter.
What is the approximate time frame to generate CRISPR lentiviral constructs?
The typical lead time is around 1-3 weeks for CRISPR lentivectors and 4-6 weeks for lentiviruses. Please inquire for a more accurate lead time.
How should I store my lentivirus?
Aliquots should be made for the lentivirus and stored at -70 degrees Celsius.
If a high-titer custom lentivirus was ordered, do you do the lentiviral titration after a freeze-thaw or straight after production before the freeze-down step?
We do the titration after aliquoting and freeze-down. Thus, the titer should be accurate for the customer after they thaw the finished product for the first time.
Which virus has your lentivirus expression system been derived from? Is it HIV?
Our lentivirus expression system is derived from Human HIV-1 Virus. It employs third generation self-inactivating recombinant lentiviral vectors with enhanced biosafety features and minimal relation to wild-type Human HIV-1 Virus.
How do you verify the titer?
We use our LV900 series - qPCR Lentivirus Titration(Titer) Kit. This kit quantifies a proprietary region of the lentiviral 5’-LTR.
What is the packaging capacity for Lentivirus?
The maximum insert size is <9 kb between the 5'LTR to 3'LTR.
