  • Description: The FLYA-13 Cell Line is a packaging cell line enabling production of high-titer, human complement-resistant recombinant retroviruses, with significantly reduced probability of replication-competent retrovirus generation. HT 1080-based packaging cell line enabling production of recombinant retroviral vectors with Moloney murine leukemia virus cores and amphotropic murine leukemia virus envelopes. The vectors demonstrate high resistance to the inhibitory effects of human serum/complement, in...
