Non-viral vs. Viral Delivery
Providing tools and custom services, B-MoGen can accelerate your research to achieve what others cannot.
Making Expression Vectors
There are numerous chemical, physical and viral-based methods for gene transfer into cells in culture. These methods have helped revolutionize biological research and have provided the biotechnology field with the tools needed to make useful cell lines, producing proteins, vaccines and much more.
Non-viral delivery provides lower cost per patient, does not produce an immune response, and unlike viral cargos that can incur mutagenic risks, transposons have few known preferences for integration sites.
|Viral Delivery||Non-Viral / DNA transposons|
|Cost||$35K – $45K per patient||$8K – $12K per patient|
|Mediates stable gene transfer||+||+|
|Insertional mutagenesis||Preference for active sites||Transposase dependent|
|Copy Number||Less than 5||Less than 5|
