  • VectorBuilder offers a comprehensive online platform for vector design. We found the options for customising our vectors to be extensive and the interface simple - allowing this to be done ‘with a click’. The team has been really responsive when I wanted to check things through - thanks Christina! In my view, VectorBuilder is a platform worth investigating when you are looking to save time and outsource cloning and virus production.

  • VectorBuilder’s online vector design platform is user friendly and easy to use. All one needs to do is select sequences of inserts either from their vast data base or provide one’s own unique sequences. The sequence database provides a wealth of information and links to peer-reviewed publications. Placing order for the vectors is easy and their technical and supporting staff are prompt in offering solutions. They offer services at low prices in comparison to other commercial sources. With the guaranteed service, I can concentrate on my experiments instead of constructing the vector. Thanks are especially due to Stella Gideon for her support at every step. If one is constrained with time and manpower to devote to vector construction, leave it to VectorBuilder. It is worth every penny.

  • I would like to share with you my positive experience purchasing a lentiviral vector from VectorBuilder.
     
    First, I am an immunologist and have little experience with cloning. In my recent project, we needed to overexpress a gene in melanoma cells. The transfection efficiency using plasmids in this cell line was extremely low, less than 10%. Then, we tried to use antibiotics to select transfected cells and establish stably expressing cell lines. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, the ‘stable transfectants’ lost the transfected genes! I was frustrated at this point, until I met VectorBuilder at the EACR conference in Amsterdam. Using the user-friendly website from VectorBuilder, I designed for the first time in my life my own lentiviral vector and got the product in less than one month. My group leader, who has a lot of cloning experience, could not believe that it worked so quickly. Of course, most important are the experimental results. To access the transduction efficiency, I included an EGFP tag in the vector. Now, I can transduce the melanoma cells with nearly 100% positivity. In the following assays, the genes transduced into the tumor cells resulted in a 6-fold induction in tumor immunogenicity.
    Taken together, I strongly recommend VectorBuilder to researchers, especially those who are not so experienced with cloning, and am convinced that the service and product quality from VectorBuilder can further help me to proceed with my own projects more effectively.

  • VectorBuilder is the best platform for designing and synthesizing constructs. The online vector design tool is so convenient and fun to use. Ms. Joyce Zhang is always very professional in replying my questions and does it so timely. One time, something did not work out, the refund process was smooth and all the staff were very nice and professional. The constructs I asked for had two fluorescent proteins with two promotors, one has NLS and the other does not. I did transfection and it worked out very well. Joyce helped me all through this process, making my life very easy. Basically, I had many pleasant experiences with Vectorbuilder, and I strongly recommend using it. I had tried other companies, they turned out to be either slow or lacked strong technical support or are expensive. Vectorbuilder is not the cheapest, but considering the quality of its service, it is worth the money.

  • Using VectorBuilder has transformed the way I do my research. VectorBuilder’s easy-to-use web interface allows me to custom build my own plasmids, freeing up time that I would have wasted cloning and instead letting me focus on the research that really matters. They offer great prices with a fast turnaround time. Their friendly and well-informed technical support team are on hand every step of the way, should you need any help. I would strongly recommend VectorBuilder to anyone wanting to accelerate the progress of their research.

  • We recently purchased a number of customized plasmids on VectorBuilder. They consisted of expression vectors of two or more ORFs. Our experience was satisfactory, efficient and cost-effective.

    The designing stage was facilitated by the VectorBuilder design tool online, in which many of the most commonly used sequences, like fluorescent proteins, selection drug resistance genes, and fusion or cleavage linkers were readily offered to be picked from the ORF lists. Regarding our specific sequences, once pasted into the corresponding window of the design tool, they were immediately matched with the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank) accession numbers and compared to the databases. Where there were discrepancies, we were asked which transcripts/cDNAs we preferred to use.

    After completing the order, in a matter of three to four weeks, we had in our hands 8 of the 10 plasmids, as offered. For the rest of the plasmids we provided the template for a specific sequence. Before proceeding with the cloning, they sequenced it, detected a mutation and corrected it at a low extra cost upon our approval. A week later these corrected plasmids were delivered as well. During the whole process, VectorBuilder’s European team kept a personalized email dialogue with us, enabling us to follow-up and make decisions or accept suggestions about the plasmids.

    We have satisfactorily tested every plasmid now. We think that our decision to work with VectorBuilder has boosted our research by saving us time, resources and enabling us to concentrate more on our experiments.

  • VectorBuilder is an intuitive tool for developing vectors at affordable prices. I was in need of a CRISPR lentiviral system with a Puro selection cassette due to working with delicate cells that cannot handle FACS sorting pressures. With their online interface, it was easy to construct the vector I wanted and received the vector in a timely manner! It was simple to produce virus and test it in our cell culture and generated clonal cells with good gene knockdown. I definitely will be ordering more vectors from VectorBuilder to finish up my thesis!
