Access a comprehensive suite of discovery vaccine testing services, enabling the development of human and veterinary vaccines against viral and bacterial pathogens. With more than four decades of experience working with a variety of vaccine types within a full range of in vivo and in vitro services, we can be an ideal partner for all your vaccine development needs.

Vaccine development and solution-based discovery 

We work with all common vaccine types: subunit, live/attenuated, inactivated and toxoid

  • In vitro capabilities
    • Humoral immune response analysis: Analyze various antibody response types in the well-equipped laboratories using ELISA, neutralization assays, HAI and other tests
    • Cell-mediated immune response: Decipher Th1 and Th2 responses by ELISpot in a dedicated tissue culture facility 
  • In vivo capabilities
    • Immunogenicity studies: Select from a variety of host species ranging from rodents to nonhuman primates with rapid study starts and scalability from a few to a large number of animals
    • Efficacy/challenge: Evaluate your vaccine’s efficacy in our vivariums supporting up to BSL2 pathogens in custom-developed or standard research models

Immunogenicity Studies

Immunogenicity studies are a combination of in vivo and in vitro services providing you with a complete evaluation of the immunogenicity of your test vaccines. We work with you as part of a comprehensive development plan to identify a suitable host species (based on the nature of the vaccine) and to recommend sample analysis methods. 

Efficacy/Challenge Studies

Following satisfactory immunogenicity results, efficacy or challenge studies can be conducted using a standard or custom animal model. Pathogens up to BSL2 can be tested in our state-of-the-art vivariums in studies ranging in size from small pilot studies to larger, complex designs. Samples originating from these in vivo studies can be transferred to our laboratories for further analysis.
