Sensitive

Ready-to-use, pre-coated 96-well ELISA kits with sub-picogram sensitivity for many analytes.

Specific

Tested for cross-reactivity.

Hamster models & Infectious Diseases

Hamster immune responses to infectious pathogens are similar to humans. As such, this small animal model has been advantageous in studying the pathogenesis of infection in humans. Furthermore, Hamster models can be used to determine the efficacy and interactions of treatments and vaccines for pathogens. Our Hamster ELISA Kits serve as an excellent research tool to understand the underlying immune responses to infectious diseases.

Hamster models & SARS-CoV-2 infection

Hamsters have been recognized as a valuable animal model for the analysis of human viral pathogens including SARS-CoV-2.

Cytokines play a crucial role in determining the outcome of viral infections. Furthermore, the excessive immune response produced by SARS-CoV-2 infection in the host can lead to an exacerbated feedback loop of inflammation known as “cytokine release syndrome” (CRS). The over induction of inflammatory cytokines and the dysregulation of cytokine signaling pathways may contribute to the immunopathology associated with cytokine storm. IL-6, along with IL-10 and IFNγ are the cytokines most consistently implicated in CRS. Hamster immunoassays are a critical research tool for characterizing the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 infection in humans.

Related Tools for Research

Intense research is now required to elucidate the immunological & cardiovascular pathways involved in COVID-19. This research will contribute to the development of a vaccine versus the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the development of therapeutics and anti-virals to prevent and/or repress SARS-CoV-2 infection. To support COVID-19 research we have developed some key biological research tools such as antibodies, ELISA kits, ACE2 assays and multiplex panels to measure cytokine storm.
