SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Pseudovirus for Neutralizing assays
LumiSTAR used the lentiviral backbone to package the SARS-CoV-2 (2019-nCoV, COVID-19 virus) S protein as a surface capsid glycoprotein and containing GFP and Luciferase dual reporter genes as a pseudovirus model. The virus can infect cell lines overexpressing the ACE2 gene. Researchers can determine the infection efficiency by observing GFP through a microscope and detecting the value of Luciferase.
