Mice Studies using Flow Cytometry


As you may recall, this newsletter included brief descriptions of our Immunodiagnostic Kits and some of the common conditions/diseases that are diagnosed using these kits. Not only are these kits EMA approved for clinical use, but they are also regularly used for novel or basic research.

We have shared various publications that utilized these immunodiagnostic kits to analyze human blood samples. This product line allows for the generation of highly reproducible quantitative data, which makes them a logical choice for such clinical studies. However, over the years, this product line has shown its versatility in that it has emerged as an excellent choice for non-human studies.

In the article "Mice Chronically Fed High-Fat Diet Have Increased Mortality and Disturbed Immune Response in Sepsis," researchers use the PhagoTest kit to analyze diet effects on their mouse population.

In the paper "Neutrophil-derived IL-1β Is Sufficient for Abscess Formation in Immunity against Staphylococcus aureus in Mice," scientists used the PhagoBurst kit to analyze mouse immune function against Staphylococcus aureus.

These and several other publications use the advantages of the relevant kit in order to analyze novel compound effects on mice as well as immune function in mouse disease models. In addition to mice, these kits may be used to analyze immune functions in large populations of other animals, including cows, dogs, and pigs.

Although these immunodiagnostic kits were originally purposed for clinical use, they have proven to be an invaluable tool for both human and non-human novel research. The accurate, reproducible results that this product line guarantees will accelerate and strengthen your own research goals.
