Biological Information
Background Information:
The KILR® Retroparticles for Suspension Cells (Hygromycin B) are MMLV particles designed to transduce suspension cells. This allows production of PL-tagged, hygromycin B-resistant target cells of interest for use in cytotoxicity assays involving detection of cell lysis. This product uses EFC technology ( The retroparticle mix can be used to transduce target cells with a PL-tagged housekeeping gene. Target cell death in a cytotoxicity assay will release PL to the media, where EA contained in the detection reagent will produce EFC signal. These retroparticles ship as 4 vials of cryopreserved retroparticles.
