Infectious disease research is based on multidisciplinary scientific and diagnostic development work and application workflows, incorporating techniques and knowledge from human medicine via translational model animals to veterinary pathologies.
The coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is a highly transmittable infection. The virus gains cell entry when the spike (S) protein binds to the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor. Infection can develop into acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which results in pulmonary failure and possible fatality.
Bio-Rad supplies antibodies to the key functional regions of the S protein, the nucleoprotein, and the viral envelope.
