In-Stock AAV Vectors - Dr. Ed Boyden, 100ul Aliquots

We are pleased to stock optogenetic constructs from Dr. Ed Boyden at MIT.  The following constructs are available in serotypes 1, 2, 5, 6, 8 & 9 with exceptions noted below.  For other serotypes, please place an order for a custom prep. 

**An MTA is now required by MIT. Please contact for MTA template for nonprofit entities.

Prior to receiving these constructs, for-profit entities must first acquire a non-exclusive internal research use license from M.I.T.; alternatively, commercial users of the Axion Biosystems Lumos™ multiwell optical stimulator may acquire such a license directly from Axion Biosystems.
