Murine Pathogen Testing

Our murine pathogen testing utilizes ultra-sensitive qPCR to screen for a multitude of murine pathogens. With two panels to choose from, our service ensures that the antibodies you are using for in vivo research will meet the requirements of your institution’s animal care committee.

Murine Pathogen Screening

Key Features

Advanced Technique - Bio X Cell’s qPCR method features sensitivity, specificity, speed, and enables effortless addition of positive and negative controls, rivaling other testing methods. If your internal testing facility uses more traditional screening approaches, try our method for early detection that you can trust.

Meets Varying Standards - With two panels to choose from, Bio X Cell can accommodate the demands of any animal care facility or CRO. Our MAP1 panel meets the minimum requirements of IACUC committees, whereas our MAP2 panel exceeds the most demanding requirements.

Reduces Animals - At Bio X Cell we embrace the 3R’s of animal welfare, Reduction, Refinement, and Replacement. Our qPCR method is a replacement for traditional pathogen testing involving live mice. As a vendor of a biologic that is used for in vivo research, we believe that it is our responsibility to advocate for pathogen testing to lessen re-work and reduce the number of animals used.

Animal Free Facility - Did you know that Bio X Cell is an animal-free facility? Our antibody production process is ultra-clean and there is no risk of contamination of murine viruses or bacteria from animal dander. You can trust the purity and cleanliness of our antibodies for your important in vivo and in vitro studies.
