In vitro assay

Service description

SARS-CoV-2 specific assays have been developed and are made available for the development of antiviral drugs: 

In vitro (Vero E6 cells or other models):

  • Cell viability/cytotoxicity at different time points, using cell titer Glo Cytopathic effect Assessment of the CPE and determination of EC50 Viral titration by qPCR Viral titration by PFU
  • Strains of SARS-CoV-2 available: Wuhan, South African (Bêta), Brazilian (gamma), UK (Alpha), Indian (Delta) and Omicron
  • Controls: infected and uninfected cells + remdesivir

This service is designed for Biotech companies developing SARS-CoV-2 new drugs.
