Recognize fully assembled
capsids easily


AAV particle antibodies recognize conformational epitopes on viral capsids that are only present on fully assembled capsids. These epitopes are made up of distant amino acids either from the same protein or from different proteins that are close by.

You can use particle antibodies to

Analyze: track the location of virus particles and identify protein-protein interactions
Purify: suitable for AAV particle purification using affinity chromatography
Characterize: determine your AAV capsid titers
Control: analyze the condition of your AAV particles
Monitor: use as a positive control for neutralization assays with patient sera

AAV Antibodies FAQs

Yes, our AAV particle antibodies detect conformational epitopes only present on assembled capsids.

You can find all AAV particle antibodies here.

In contrast, AAV capsid protein antibodies recognize linear epitopes present on denatured VP proteins.

You can find all AAV capsid protein antibodies here.

Yes, PROGEN offers a selection of AAV antibodies in 10 µg sample sizes. You can find all available AAV antibodies here: AAV Antibodies

PROGEN offers a wide range of AAV antibodies either detecting a linear epitope (AAV capsid protein antibodies), a conformational epitope (AAV particle antibodies) or a AAV replicase.

These antibodies are provided in different quantities and formats (e.g. purified and supernatant). A selection of AAV antibodies are also available in 10 µg sample sizes. You can find all available AAV antibodies here: AAV Antibodies.

AlphaLISA® AAV2 Capsid Detection Kit

PerkinElmer has integrated PROGEN’s well-established AAV2 particle antibody A20R into their no-wash AlphaLISA® assay technology. The AlphaLISA® AAV2 Capsid Detection Kit is designed to quantify AAV2 capsids in buffer, cell culture media, cell lysates and cell supernatants.

PROGEN’s A20R antibody exclusively detects fully assembled, intact AAV2 capsids, providing an efficient and reliable quantification of the overall AAV2 capsid titer.
