The Complexities of SV Analytical Ultracentrifugation: AAVs are not Simple, Binary Systems

Lake Paul, PhD
BioAnalysis, LLC
September 2020

As SV-AUC becomes the go-to method for quantitation and characterization of AAV, caution must be taken during the experimental design and analysis. Dr. Paul presents approaches to correctly analyzing AAV systems, explains how to apply AUC in a cGMP environment and how to develop proper experimental design for AAV systems and extracting the correct information.
