Overview

Safely study SARS-CoV-2 interactions 

A critical tool for your SARS-CoV-2 research, the pPACK-BALD Envelope Protein-free Lentivector Packaging Mix is a ready-to-use packaging mix for creating envelope protein-free negative controls for pPACK-SPIKE and pPACK-SPIKE D614G studies. In addition, pPACK-BALD can also be used to generate custom pseudotyped virus particles by including your own envelope protein expression vector in the packaging reaction.

Based on SBI’s highly cited pPACKH1 packaging system, pPACK-BALD consists of two plasmids that produce all of the structural and  replication proteins needed to transcribe and package an RNA copy of an expression lentivector into recombinant lentivirus particles that have no envelope protein.

  • Based on SBI’s popular and highly cited pPACKH1 Packaging System
  • Omits the envelope protein expression vector
  • Ideal for COVID-19 research as a negative control for pPACK-SPIKE or pPACK-SPIKE D614G
