Viruses can be transmitted through biological materials, which may jeopardize
experimental protocols and cause infections and other health problems
in animals. This is a concern to many researchers and managers of animal
antibodies are carefully screened for murine pathogens, and we offer this
as an optional service for
MAb antibodies and antibodies that we custom-produce from your hybridoma
cells. This ensures that the antibodies are free of murine pathogens and
that you have the documentation to satisfy the requirements of your institution’s
animal facility and IACUC committee.
Traditional mouse antigen production (MAP) testing requires the use of
live animals to detect viruses in biological samples. Bio X Cell employs
the latest technology to detect murine pathogens, an ultra-sensitive qPCR
technique which boasts lower costs, rapid turnaround times, and eliminates
the need for live animals.
We recommend murine pathogen testing for any antibody used in an
application. Bio X Cell offers two different testing panels to choose
from. Our MAP1 panel screens for six different essential mouse viruses
and our MAP2 panel screens for a comprehensive list of 19 different pathogens.
