Amazing experience with VectorBuilder! Ordered plasmids beginning of December, and despite the holiday season they arrived exactly as scheduled. Furthermore, customer support reached out to ask what would be my desired delivery date, considering potential holiday time at my institute. Overall, I am super satisfied, would highly recommend VectorBuilder (which I already do) and will buy from them again. All the best from my side!

We began to use VectorBuilder to prepare adenoviral plasmids about a year ago. We normally handled all the cloning stuffs ourselves, but when it comes to adenoviral vectors, because of its large size, sometimes it is kind of tricky for inexperienced students. We decided to give a try on VectorBuilder. One month later, the plasmid arrived and it generated virus that expressed the correct gene. After that, we have ordered more than 10 adenoviral plasmids and they all work fine. VectorBuilder did save us a lot of time.

I ordered a plasmid vector two years ago. The design on the web platform was easy. Contacts with the specialists to arrange further details were excellent: they are very supportive!

We have ordered quite a few plasmids from VectorBuilder in the past 1-2 years, ranging from regular plasmids, piggybac, and AAV vectors. The products have been delivered on time and worked as expected. Highly recommend!

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 from VectorBuilder a lentiviral plasmid for constitutive expression of GFP and luciferase and the corresponding lentivirus. We had infected several tumor cell lines with excellent results. The lentiviral stocks worked very nice saving us a lot of time. We are now using these modified cell lines for monitoring tumor growth in animal models using in vivo imaging.

VectorBuilder is an amazing way to save time on molecular biology. The web site is easy to use, well-conceived and allows quick design in most cases. For more unusual requests, the team is energetic, reply promptly on every request, and always finds a way to help. Low prices and short timelines really make it possible to consider VectorBuilder on many cloning matters.

We requested a custom AAV (4-YF) from VectorBuilder. The ordering process was easy and the customer support team were really helpful. Our virus had the expected titer and worked extremely well for our chosen application.

VectorBuilder has provided very satisfactory service in making various AAV vector constructs for us. The new sales representative is very proactive in offering help on explaining and introducing other VectorBuilder service to us. Expecting to get more support and service from VectorBuilder.

I have been consistently using VectorBuilder over the last couple years and have been extremely satisfied with the vectors delivered to me. These include standard over-expression vectors, and Cas9 vectors on piggybac backbone. All of the vectors I have purchased so far have passed my QC and provided reproducible functional data.

I have been successfully cloning for 3+ years, but the last time we tried generating KO cell lines with CRISPR/Cas9 vectors, we were not successful. This was upsetting, especially since I invested a lot of time in these efforts. Then, by chance, I attended one of VectorBuilder's seminars. Due to their reasonable prices and the fact I could focus my time on other work, we decided to give their lentiviral (dual gRNA) Cas9 plasmid a try. The turnaround time was reasonable, their customer service was excellent and they actually gave feedback about the status of my cloning projects. Their website is also easy to use. But most importantly: using their Cas9 dual
I recommend VectorBuilder to CRISPRCas9 users without any hesitation.

We have used VectorBuilder for multiple vectors including regular, lentiviral, Tet-inducible, and CRISPR/Cas9 vectors. Designing the vectors is super easy and we have had good luck with them. I would definitely recommend their products!

Before using VectorBuilder, producing lentiviral overexpression vectors for our in vitro models was a recurring and time-consuming enterprise. We faced frequent challenges in every experimental step, which made it difficult to plan the actual experiments. Setting up the process with VectorBuilder was very efficient, thanks to their great expertise and support. Once we started using VectorBuilder's services, we noticed a substantial increase in productivity as well as a more uniform and predictable transduction pattern of our target cells.
We went on to use VectorBuilder for a large-scale CRISPR screen with a custom library spanning over 1,600 genes. With the provided virus, we were able to easily maintain cell representation and we derived a number of interesting hit genes, which we are excited to follow up on. A big thank you to the entire VectorBuilder Team!
University of Basel
We were searching for a way to outsource the cloning of our vectors and we are very happy with the service. The versatility of the tools make it a great time saver and the vectors were delivered on-time. Lentiviruses packaged are also very reliable and have been very successful in transduction studies in primary cells. Great customer service with fast response times and the team at VectorBuilder are very knowledgeable.
