Cell models: Sars‑Cov‑2

Browse our extensive range of 2D & 3D models for characterizing SARS-CoV-2 infection & choose the best option for your research.

Our cell models are available for the following types of analysis:

  • Virus quantification – infectious particles (TCID50, Plaque assay)
  • Virus quantification – non-infectious particles (qRT-PCR)
  • Neutralization
  • Cell viability/cytoxicity
  • Immunological assays (ELISA, Flow cytometry)
  • Bioimaging (Immunofluorescence, electron microscopy, confocal microscopy, histology, etc.)

To make sure that the type of analysis you are interested in can be performed in specific cell models, please do not hesitate to contact us exvivo-invivo-services@isidore-project.eu
