Product Type: Virus
Name: Ad CMV Cre
Biosafety Level: BSL-2
Vector Information: Recombinant adenovirus
Target Gene / Reporter(s): Cre
Promoter: CMV
Virus: Adenovirus
Titer: 1X10^12 pts/mL, CsCl purified, RCA free and PFU titred
Storage: Store at -80C. Avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles.Virus is supplied at 1X10^12 particles/mL. We recommend thawing the virus at room temperature. For aliquoting, 0.5 mL screw cap vials are recommended. Other tubes do not seal tight enough and eventually the solution desiccates at -80 and the virus looses infectivity. We do not recommend diluting the virus and refreezing unless you use the cryo-protective buffer in the original formulation. Do not store or thaw the virus on ice, -20 C or 4 C.
Shipped: Frozen on Dry ice
