Striving for Excellence in Gene Delivery


Virovek specializes in large-scale and custom-made adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector production through our innovative and patented BAC-to-AAV and toxin-based cell ablation technologies. Since 2006, thousands of AAV vectors at 1E+13vg scale or above have been produced to support projects in hundreds of university laboratories, non-profit institutions and industry leaders across the Americas, Europe and Asia.


Our AAV production platform is able to generate 1E+17vg/ml of virus from a single production run. We offer comprehensive services including:

  • Custom AAV production (1E+13 to 1E+17vg/ml)
  • Pre-made AAVs
  • Plasmids, Bacmids, Recombinant Baculovirus
  • Gene cloning service
  • Quality Control Assays
