Adeno-Associated Viruses (AAVs) are regularly employed to deliver gene therapies into the cell. To achieve effective transport of the therapeutic, the proteins that make up the shell of the AAV must be accurately characterized. The Labchip GXII Touch HT system from PerkinElmer utilizes capillary electrophoresis to quickly quantify the capsid protein composition of AAVs. In as little as 60 seconds per sample, the labchip can calculate size, concentration, percent purity, and the ratio of AAV capsid proteins.
