Cytokine Testing

Today, Contract Laboratory received a request from a research center that is in need of a Bioanalytical Laboratory needed for cytokine testing.  The company is conducting  research on burn scars and needs testing of the micro-dialysis fluid from scar areas.

According to the the United States National Institute for  Allergy and  Infectious Dieseases, cytokines are proteins that are secreted by immune cells and act on other cells to coordinate appropriate immune responses. Cytokines include a diverse assortment of interleukins, interferons, and growth factors.

Some other examples where Contract Laboratory worked with pharmaceutical manufacturers or heatlhcare  research facilities n cytokine research and testing includes:

  • France Preclinical Contract Research Organization needed to test the anti-cytokine profile of anti-inflammatories in vitro
  • USA CRO, Preclinical Laboratory for preclinical pharmaceutical compound testing Non-clinical study in vitro testing. Compounds testing in human macrophage/neutrophil/lymphocytes cell lines cultures for chemokines/cytokines secretions and or gene expressions
  • US Bioanalytical laboratory needed for human blood testing . Must have already validated human whole blood assay experience. Testing of Human whole blood assay (three donors) to test modulation of the inflammatory response by three (3) test articles (plus positive and negative controls)after stimulation
  • United States Bioanalytical Laboratory needed for blood testing: Canine whole blood assay to test modulation of the inflammatory response by three (3) test articles (plus positive and negative controls)after stimulation with LPS (n=8 per treatment group). Measure cytokine/chemokine release
  • USA FDA GLP Preclinical laboratory, Contract Research Organization needed for GLP Preclinical Study: ELISA cytokine and EMSA NF-kB in vitro experiments to assess bioactivity of six (6) water-based treatment agents in a single dilution plus one positive and negative control each, run in triplicate
