AAV Purification Maxi Slurry Kit

Recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors are highly promising tools for both in vitro and in vivo gene transfer. Norgen’s AAV purification kits provide a fast and simple procedure for concentrating and purifying AAV vectors from cell lysate and cell culture media. Purification is based on spin column chromatography using Norgen’s proprietary resin as an ion exchanger. Contaminating cellular debris is largely removed from the sample via a precipitation and centrifugation step, while contaminating DNA and RNA is reduced using enzymatic digestion and column purification. AAV vector purified in this manner is highly active for use in in vitro transduction experiments, and is eluted into a small volume (1-10 mL) using the optional concentration step.
