    AAV Safety

    According to the guidelines from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), AAV vectors are considered as risk group 1 agents that are not associated with disease in healthy adult humans. AAV vectors can be handled in a biosafety level 1 (BSL-1) environment.

    Recommendation for AAV Vector Storage and Handling

    • AAV vectors are very stable at room temperature and 4°C:
    • For long-term storage, store at -80°C:
    • Additional recommendations for AAV handling:
    • Thawing: either at room temperature or in 37°C water bath
    • Do NOT store at -20°C under any circumstance

     

    Please avoid unnecessary freeze-thawing of AAV vectors, as excessive freeze-thawing cycles would lead to significant decrease in titer and loss of biological activity.
