Viral Aggregation in Downstream Processing of Lentiviral Vectors

Beckman Coulter CytoFLEX Flow Cytometer credit CCRM 500 px wideViral vectors are vehicles for delivery of therapeutic DNA in cell and gene therapies. With over 1,000 cell and gene therapy (CGT) clinical trials underway globally, there is a growing need to address challenges in viral vector manufacturing – both upstream and downstream. In a previous post, we outlined the key steps in downstream processing (DSP) for the manufacturing of lentiviral vectors (LVV). Achieving high concentration without aggregation is a significant technical bottleneck in manufacturing LVV. In this post, we will explore the concept of viral aggregation and its influence in every step of DSP for LVV.
