Minute Virus of Mice (MVM) is among the most common model viruses utilized as a spiking agent during viral clearance validation. MockV has engineered a non-infectious MVM-Mock Virus Particle (MVM-MVP) that will enable scientists to accurately and economically predict MVM clearance throughout process development, prior to expensive validation studies. According to data, our MVM-MVP demonstrates a similar hydrodynamic radii, surface charge and hydrophobicity profile to live MVM. The BSL-1 compatible MVM-MVP Kit will include a highly purified and concentrated stock solution of MVM-MVP for use as a “spiking agent” and reagents to conduct a sensitive and specific Immuno-qPCR assay.

Estimated release of the MVM-MVP Kit is late-2017. Contact us to pre-order!
