What is Lentivirus and why use lentivirus to deliver DNA?
Lentiviral vectors as gene delivery tool are modified from HIV-1, with many of the viral genes removed. The lentiviral vector only contain the LTRs and the packaging signal, Ψ. Lentiviral packaging genes are provided on separate plasmids, so the pseudo lentiviral particles are replication deficient.
- Broad cell spectrum: Lentivirus infect many cells, dividing & non-dividing, easy-to-transfect & hard-to-transfect cells.
- High transduction efficiency.
- Convenience: Minimal need for optimization.
- Safety: 3rd generation system with improved biosafety.
- Legally licensed vendor for lenti products.
What is special about our lentiviral particles?
- Pre-titered, ready-to-use
- Titer guaranteed, >10^7 TU/mL
- Provided in the proprietary Lenti Stabilizer Solution with >1 year infectivity

Hear what the researchers are saying about our Lenti products
"I have used shLenti for knockdown (TXN1 and TXNRD1) and they have worked well."
"Our lab tried to package our lentivirus using 293T cells but it was not that easy. OriGene's lentivirus provided us consistent results which made us have clear idea about the further research goals."
"Lenti Vector with GFP and selection marker makes easy to generate single cell clones."
">95% of the time we achieve expression which is better than my experience with other vendors."
"We as research labs always look for an efficient and reliable lentiviral products and OriGene has really done a great job for past several years for us. We are extremely satisfied with the product's efficacy of knockdown, literature provided and technical support when needed. On top of this the service was fast enough. I shall highly recommend researchers to go for OriGene. Thank you."
"I choose OriGene's lentivirus to induce effectively long-term and deficiency of PTP1B in a primary cell line then transplanted into mice. With OriGene Lenti we achieved a downregulation of PTP1B sustained for more than 5 days, which allowed us to assess the effect of PTP1B absence in early stages of cells engraftment!"
"I have used lenti-ORF plasmids for the generation of overexpression stable cells. They work well. The cell selection marker in the vector made it easier to generate stable cells."
"The ready-to-use lentivirus particles worked well in our hard-to-transduce cell lines."
"I purchased a lenti-ORF from OriGene. I have good transfection and transduction efficiency with OriGene's lenti products. Overall, I am extremely satisfied."
"I used both the lentivirus and the lenti plasmids. Both of them worked very well. And the customer service is good too."
"We Purchased multiple lenti vectors from OriGene and they all worked great."
"Aml12 cells are very difficult to transfect using siRNAs. Hence, using OriGene's lenti-shRNA product helped tackle this issue."
