Immuno-diagnostics lab

Immune-based detection and identification at IIBR is achieved through the development of highly sensitive, rapid, accurate and robust antibody-based diagnostic systems for various bacterial and viral pathogens and toxins.

 These assays are developed to the final product phase, including automation, multiplexing, long-term storage, stabilization and testing under extreme conditions. 

 For this aim, we are utilizing cutting-edge technologies as antibody microarray, lateral flow assays, Rapid Homogenous Time-Resolved Fluorescence and Multiplexed Magnetic Microsphere Immunoassays. 

 Our lab is unique in its ability to immuno-detect bio-threats rapidly from complex matrices including environmental, food and clinical samples. This Immuno-diagnostic ability is based on exclusive in-house development of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies.

 The lab is a one-stop-shop for all stages of study, from antigen identification, to antibody development and application in detection systems.
