Adeno-associated virus (AAV) has emerged as the primary vector for in vivo gene therapy applications. AAV samples are measured and dosed via DNA concentration, traditionally determined by quantitative PCR (qPCR). qPCR is gradually being replaced by the more precise digital PCR method, which achieves absolute quantification of target sequences without standard curves. A precise AAV titration method is critical for the entire drug development journey, from preclinical studies, through process development and clinical dosing.

This webinar will cover:

  • Development of well-controlled AAV titration methods
  • Comparison of multiple digital PCR platforms for AAV titration
  • Strategies for bridging legacy qPCR methods to improved digital PCR platforms
