Innovative approaches to lentiviral vector purification: achieving high yields and purity with a chromatography-free process

In the field of gene therapy, lentiviral vector (LV) purification stands as a critical yet challenging process. Traditional purification methods often rely on chromatography, which can be costly, complex, and time-consuming, presenting significant challenges in scalability and efficiency. Additionally, maintaining high viral recovery and purity while reducing host cell contaminants is a persistent issue.

IsoTag™ LV offers a chromatography-free solution for LV purification to address these challenges. Utilizing Affinity Liquid Phase Separation (ALPS) coupled with Tangential Flow Filtration (TFF), IsoTag™ LV enables high recovery rates and substantial increase in purity in less than 8 hours. This innovative technology ensures efficient sequestration of LVs, resulting in >50% functional recovery and over 3 log reduction in host cell contaminants.

Attendees will gain insights into how this chromatography-free method simplifies and accelerates the purification process, making it ideal for both small-scale research and large-scale commercial production. The webinar highlights IsoTag™ LV's benefits, including scalability, reduced processing steps, gentle handling, and compatibility with existing equipment, making it a versatile and cost-effective choice for high-quality LV purification.

  • Learn the advantages of a chromatography-free LV purification processes with IsoTag™ LV
  • Understand how affinity-based separation technologies coupled with TFF can fit within existing manufacturing processes to achieve enhanced LV recovery with high product quality, while greatly reducing the process time
  • Learn how Isolere’s platformable process can be used throughout process development to maximize results and minimize use of expensive materials and reagents
