5 Things to Consider when Sourcing Plasmids
Dr Katie Roberts presents 5 things to consider when sourcing plasmids for a novel gene therapy.
Plasmids are small DNA constructs which act as the building blocks of gene therapies. When transiently or stably transfected into HEK293 cells, these cells act as tiny factories to produce the viral vector needed to deliver therapeutic genes to patient cells.

Plasmid quality has a real impact on safety and efficacy of a novel gene therapy and should therefore be considered carefully. In addition to the quality of the plasmids themselves, plasmids should be chosen based on whether they can be easily sourced, are free from legal constraints, and whether they will be compatible with robust manufacturing platforms.
This article will present 5 things to consider when sourcing plasmids for a novel gene therapy.
