What type of services do Vironova provide?
we offer a complete TEM analysis package that includes both negative stain TEM (nsTEM) and cryogenic TEM (cryo-TEM). Our analysis reports provide valuable morphological information that is translated into quantitative and qualitative data, allowing for faster and more informed decision-making.
What should I do to start a project with Vironova?
To learn more about our services and how we can assist you in the biopharma industry, please visit our website and fill out the "Send us a request" form, or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. One of our team members will promptly contact you to set up a meeting with our experienced scientists who can explain our processes and answer any questions you may have.
What are the different steps in the process at Vironova when you start a project?
Once you have decided to utilize our services, we will begin the project by preparing the necessary documents according to our procedures. Once all documentation is complete, we will notify you that we are ready to receive your samples. Our delivery team will provide guidance to ensure that your samples are properly shipped to us. Our senior scientists in Stockholm will perform the analysis, and the analytical report will be finalized and delivered to you within 10-15 working days from the start of the project.
How do Vironova perform image analysis?
Our image analyses are performed using our proprietary Vironova Analyzer Software (VAS). VAS is a specialized software designed specifically for nanoparticle characterization using TEM as an analytical tool. It is an FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software, ensuring compliance with our EM Services GMP certified services for TEM analytics.
How many days will it take for my sample to be analyzed?
We understand the importance of timely results, which is why your project will be performed during the reserved time slot. Our team will export images and prepare the report within 10 working days from the start of the project. For AAV analyses, we offer an AAV Express service guaranteeing a delivery time of 4 working days from the receipt of your sample.
What is the required volume and particle concentration of the sample, in order to perform the TEM analysis?
To ensure accurate and reliable results, we require a minimum volume of 25 µL of sample and 2 mL of buffer, in case dilutions are necessary. The required sample concentration varies depending on the sample composition. For instance, adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors require a concentration range between 1012-1013 viral particles per mL for TEM analysis. For more information on the required sample concentration for other types of samples, please click here.
Why is it not possible for Vironova to use my buffer from one project to another, or even the same vial for different types of analyses?
As a GMP facility, we follow internal standard operating procedures to ensure good sample traceability. After analysis and the thawing process, any remaining samples and buffers are stored at 2-8°C or at room temperature for a maximum of 30 days. To avoid cross-contamination, we do not use buffers from one project for another project. We also do not recommend the use of the same sample vial for two different projects for the same reason. If you have a special request, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Why is it so important that the sample submission form (SSF) is shipped together with our sample?
To ensure traceability between the sample shipment and the project, it is crucial that our team receives the Sample Submission Form (SSF) document along with the sample. The SSF document contains the unique project number for your project and can be traced back to the unique sample name. Therefore, it is essential that the SSF is submitted together with the sample.
