IMN Vector Core

Welcome to the IMN Vector Core


The IMN vector core is a full service facility with extensive experience in the production of recombinant adeno-associated viral vectors (rAAV). Our primary goal is to provide high-quality custom made AAV vectors and supporting the academic and industrial research community. Our core specializes in the production of research-grade AAV vectors for both in vitro and in vivo studies.


Coming soon


The core facility provides custom AAV production services including molecular cloning of AAV plasmids, large-scale productions of highly purified vectors that are suitable for both in vitro and in vivo studies and small-scale productions from crude lysate for in vitro studies only. Approximate turnaround time is 5 to 6 weeks and 2 weeks for purified and lysate productions, respectively. The core also offers free consulting on AAV construct design and AAV capsid selection.


Coming soon


Please complete and e-mail the Quote Request and Terms and Conditions to

Once the core receives a request, we carry out a feasibility study and you will get a quote from us within 5 business days. Vector production is started only after receiving your purchase order and the required material (200µg of your AAV plasmid).

Publications containing data, results, images generated by the use of viral vectors produced by the IMN vector core must acknowledge the core and the principal investigator agrees to provide a publication record. In the case the core made significant intellectual contributions to the research project or in the case of technical developments specific to the project, key contributing core personal should be listed in the publication.
