Immunovirology and Flow Cytometry Research and Services

The Viral Immunology laboratory provides basic research support in the areas of antiviral and vaccine evaluation and development and animal model evaluations (mouse and non-human primate models). Our staff has extensive experience with most flow cytometric applications as well as immunoassay development, validation and execution. Our expertise also includes the evaluation of the immunogenicity of products in vivo and the quantitation of protein products in vitro and in vivo. All of our immunoassays and a number of our flow cytometry applications can be performed in a fully GLP-compliant manner. The major assays carried out by the laboratory include:




  • immunophenotyping: cell surface and intracellular marker analysis (single and multiple markers)
  • cell sorting
  • antigen and antibody detection and quantitation
  • quantitation of infected cells
  • quantitation of cytokines and cytokine receptors
  • cell cycle analysis
  • mitogen and antigen proliferation assays
  • ELISA
  • radioimmunoassays
  • fluorescent immunoassays
