Animal Models of Infection



Examining inflammation and tissue damage during infection can characterize tissue tropism, colonization and dissemination of the virus. Using BioTek Imaging and Microscopy instruments, tissues can be imaged and analyzed.  

  • Tissue section histology and IHC
  • Gross pathology of small organs


Soluble Immune Response

Defining the soluble immune response during in vivo infection can provide valuable insight into the composition of the extracellular milieu and inflammation throughout the course of disease. BioTek Detection and Liquid Handling instruments can automate portions of the immunoassay process.  

  • ELISA of cytokines/chemokines
  • Serum/BALF, tissue homogenates response


Cellular Immune Response

Characterizing the cell populations in diseased tissue is key to understanding the in vivo response to infection. Using BioTek Imaging instruments, the cellular response and inflammatory cell populations can be quantified and described.

  • Cell surface/intracellular markers
  • Immune cell subpopulations
