Reference Material to ensure validation and qualification of your AAV products


AAV standard materials form the foundations of modern molecular biology research in ensuring validation and qualification. These meticulously engineered tools have gained widespread recognition for their remarkable safety profile and efficiency, making them a must have in the development of therapies using our genes.

These full capsid standardized AAV materials have been carefully crafted to meet stringent quality control criteria, ensuring reproducibility and consistency across labs as well as from start to finish of your AAV process.

Available for AAV1, AAV2, AAV3, AAV5, AAV6, AAV8 and AAV9, AAVrh10 and AAVrh74.

AAV Standard Material Benefits

Industry-established standards:

Containing the most commonly used and well-known combination of an eGFP transgene with a CMV promoter.

Comprehensive characterization:

Provided with a precisely determined genome and capsid titer as well as an accurate full/empty ratio allowing precise and consistent characterization of your final product. Our full capsid standard materials all have a filling grade of >70%.

Flexible use for a variety of applications:

High virus titers > 1.0E+12 vg/ml and liquid formulation (PBS with 0.014% Tween, 1 mM MgCl2 and 2.5 mM KCl) allow full capsids to be used as a reference material in a variety of applications.

AAV Standard Material FAQs

High virus titers > 1.0E+12 vg/ml and liquid formulation (PBS with 0.014% Tween, 1 mM MgCl2 and 2.5 mM KCl) allow the use as a reference material in a variety of applications e.g. PCR, BLI, SEC-MALS, mass photometry, infectivity and many more.

The AAV capsids titer is measured by our PROGEN ELISAs and the genomic titer is measured by qPCR using eGFP primers.
