Lumit™ p24 Immunoassay
In a gene therapy workflow, reproducible detection of the p24 protein on lentivirus capsids is an essential measurement in determining lentiviral titer. Using our Lumit™ technology, we have developed an easy-to-use immunoassay that provides rapid detection of the p24 protein.
The Lumit™ p24 Immunoassay offers a simple, no-wash protocol, broad dynamic range and can be completed in as little as 30 minutes, making it a compelling alternative to conventional labor-intensive immunoassays such as ELISAs.

Lumit™ p24 Immunoassay Workflow
In-Process Potency Testing of T Cell Redirecting Lenti-CAR Virus
For lentivirus vectors used in CAR-T manufacturing, guidance from regulatory authorities recommends additional measures of potency beyond transgene expression of the viral vector in CAR-T cells.
To address this need, we developed a MoA-based potency assay to measure CAR:target cell engagement for T cell redirecting lentiviral vectors. The bioassay provides a stability indicating, quantitative luminescent readout that is readily implemented as part of your CAR-T workflow.

Forced degradation samples of CAR-19 lentivirus were prepared by incubating at 37°C for 2–48 hours, then analyzed using TCR/CD3 Effector Cells and Raji Target Cells. The assay demonstrates a loss of lentiviral potency with heat treatment, as measured by an increase in EC50 and a decrease in the maximum response.
Automated RNA or DNA Extraction for Lentiviral Vector Characterization
The Maxwell RSC® Instrument is magnetic particle mover that uses prefilled cartridges and pre-programmed methods to extract DNA and/or RNA from a wide variety of sample types in 25–60 minutes.

Workflow of RNA Extraction for Copy Number Determination of Produced Lentiviral Vector Batches
DNA was extracted from 2 million cells transduced with 3 dilutions (1:5, 1:10, 1:20) of lentiviral vectors, as well as from cells that were not transduced (no LV). The custom Promega One4All kit extracted high-quality gDNA with absorbance ratios higher than 2, and both the DNA quality and yields meet requirements for analysis.
